Typical Grayson County reaction - rain on the parade. You would rather curse the darkness than light a single candle. Reliable or not, there are people in this county who need these jobs. We had better be counting our blessing; especially in this economy. If we don't want them, you can bet your bottom dollar someone else does. You are one sorry individual.

Congratulations to everyone who had a part in bringing this factory to Leitchfield.

FYI, let me guess you do not have a job? While I am working every day my tax dollars are keeping you up! I am glad to see a new factory coming to Leitchfield!

Yep, you sure did. I'm sick and tired of people bitching, moaning and complaining in this community about everything in life and not doing anything positive about it. This factory is good for Grayson County unless you are one of those who really would just rather sit on your butt everyday and draw a check. With the prospect of new jobs, you wouldn't have an excuse for not having one. Even if this new company only lasted a year, a job for a day is better than no job at all. So, instead of trying to shoot this new factory down, why don't you try to do something constructive in life.

Again, congratulations to anyone and everyone who had a hand in bringing this new factory to Grayson County. Don't let idiots like this one get you down.

But you're being negative too. And enough with the welfare accusations. I don't collect welfare, end of story.

That said, I did kinda sound like a douchebag. I just think that GC needs to have more experience-building part time jobs that don't rely on nepotism to get hired.

I resent that remark. I know that is not untrue. It is just the 125 lazy asses Grayson Counties have relatives pulling for these people to get these jobs. The ones of us who already work low paying jobs cannot get off to apply for them, yes we are from Grayson County and we work! They just want to make sure they get the $1000 per person they hire and they get their cut. Reference are reliable, some people will say anything to get a friend or the relative of a friend a job. Kentucky has the right to let employees go without a reason and perhaps this factory should use it.Why hire Hardin people first they have good jobs in Etown, Radcliff and Ft. Knox. Could it be they can't cut it, maybe they are the lazy asses and ignorant and they wouldn't hire them in Hardin County?

They failed to mention how long before they would be up to 125 or if they had a guarantee to hire that many. I'm hearing within 4 years.

Why would you want to? Look at all the states where jobs are being created and they are states with right to work laws. The quickest way to lose this plant or any other plant to China or Mexico is to suggest it be union. Why do you think Vermont America left this town? Unions have outlived there usefullness. They serve no purpose in today's economy other than to cause factories and jobs to leave the United States.
