since the plant is union, it will be tough for employees to get jobs at non-union plants. They do not want union people as employees.

I know right the rednecks thought he was going to take their guns away when he got elected. So they ran out and bought up all ammo. And the first thing he did was loosen gun laws. What idiots

This is sad. This plant was a cornerstone in Jonesboro. Such good, hard-working people worked there. I'm sorry for them all.

Joel is just doing what he perceives to be the best for his business. I don't blame him. He's not running a charity! All you limp wristed liberal sh*t for brains think businessmen owe you a living. You're living in a dream world. You agreed that if "Joel" paid you $ XX.00 an hour you would use your talent to get a catalog or magazine out the door. He kept up his part of the bargain. The problem here is the wart nosed stinker in the White House has screwed up our economy to the point that the only way Joel can keep his company afloat is to close plants, reduce payroll and consolidate manufacturing.

get off topix long enough to find one. Most of the big factories ate hiring nestle Alberto Fritto nordex nicpac are hiring. Post was taking apps. What more do want. So one to hold your hand. If a man or woman wants job they are out there. Oh and your welcome for a few leads. Now you need to get off your ass and quit making excuses for yourself and find a job
not here

I don't see a help wanted site on topix. So you looking in the wrong. Try workforce They have all kinds of jobs. Last I heard Alberto was getting to add over a hundred jobs in the next year

I'm wondering why the media has not contacted anyone in the union here for the other side of the story. All that has been reported is the "official company position". People here need to be told about the real circumstances of why over 600 of their family, friends, and neighbors will soon be unemployeed.

I don't know this for a fact but I would have to assume it has to do with a little piece a paper that each employee signed when Quad purchased the Jonesboro plant. They had a whole booklet addressing this subject.

I don't understand why any booklet or piece of paper signed by anyone would keep the media from trying to talk to any of the employees.

Good point! The only person I've heard interviewed is the owner of Couch's BBQ! What the hell does he know about it? Why not talk to union members, plant manager, someone a little more directly involved than a BBQ joint owner down the street!
