I have never worked there but if it reopened in 6months and paid 10.00/hr, Saturdays off and NO UNION, I would push people down to get in the application line!!!*******

Well, I guess it's called "living within our means". Twenty thousand a year ($10/hour) is a long way from the $90K/year that some of the current Goodyear guys probably make who live at the plant. Goodyear is one of the few places in our area where the union blue collar workers can as much or more $ than white collar supervisors can at other local industries.

I heard recent rumors that Ferry Morse is closing , too. with layoffs , getting rid of equipment, running out of seed, taking back company vehichles. I wonder if this is true, Does it have anything todo with big box stores like Tractor supply, K Mart, Walmart, etc switching over to Burpee Seeds instead? Does anyone in the KY area known anyything more about this? Will this be the end of Ferry Morse as we have known it? What aboujt Jiffy . All I see in the stores here up north are Burpee.

Why did you have to bring this subject to Topix? Nobody knows what will happen in the next few weeks at Ferry-Morse. There is nothing that the union can do. If the doors close, there won't be a union, and you won't have a job! That's what you need to be worried about instead of gossiping on this trash site!

Maybe if more stuff at Walmart said, "Made in USA",.....maybe there would be more jobs here in this country.
Folks, this country is in bad shape. We owe China a ton of money. We need manufacturing jobs here. However, China can supply things cheaper than we can make them......especially when workers are getting paid $25 or $30 per hour here in the USA. Look at what happened to the big 3 automakers. They gave the unions concessions and lucrative deals in the 50's, 60's, and 70's. Now with so many of those people retired and drawing healthcare and pensions, it about killed Ford, GM, and Chrysler. The non union auto making facilities did not suffer as much. What I'm saying is that if we want jobs here in the USA, we are going to have to settle for lower wages, unfortunately. If Goodyear reopened after 6 months and the starting pay was $10.00/hour, would you apply?
yes i would apply.$10.00 sure beats $7.25.

Because your opinion, or what you post on Topix, matters right? There is nothing wrong with Management the way it is now. So, before you get all Bitchy and start calling people out because "no nothing" as you said, here's some facts:
1. Billy, as you may know, runs TWO departments, Assembly AND the warehouse. When he isn't helping One Department...he's helping another. He also handles any problems the People in the Front Office have. So, he doesn't stay in his department? Basically the whole plant is his Department, he is...in my opinion, the hardest working and smartest Manager At Ferry Morse right now. Not saying there is anything wrong with Mrs. Denise or Carla...but he does ALOT for the company, and to say he doesn't know what is going on is stupid on your part.
2. So what if Dena Misses alot? From what I've seen, she's doing a good job in Assembly. Her and Billy make a good team there, just like Billy and Myra make a good team in the Warehouse. She's the lead for a reason.
So, before you try to talk shit about someone again...just remember those people are the ones who are letting you keep your job and working their Hardest to make sure you have a job to come to so you can be on your high horse and talk shit...I never thought I would post on this trash site, but when ignorant people start slandering my Co-workers/friends, I have a problem with that.
Oh and here, I figured you might need to use this:
