SHUT UP HAITI

AOL

#21 Nov 5, 2008
You Haitian's need to get over what ever trip you seem to be on. HBI closed plants here to and you ain't no better than we are. I'm just glad to see they finally closed one in another country after all the one's they have closed here. HBI is an American country and they did their own people wrong and they can do it to you too. Shut up about it, don't no body here care. We have had more than one plant to close and a heck of a lot more people affected than you do. Give it up, just don't buy their product. HBI has closed 3 of the plants I worked for and I'm not begging you to do something about it.

I totally agree with you. What do they want from us. I my self have had my job taken by HBI three times. It is about time that someone else suffer. I say if you want to do something about it quit buying their product. Make them suffer. Do these Haitian's think we owe them something? Get a real life HBI aint gonna give you nothing. America is having a hard enough time keeping their own jobs. YOU TELL THEM "SHUT UP HAITI"

Hi Rosa, First, the Triad area of NC is a great place with lots to see and do. Could I recommend a smaller town close to Winston. Lexington is about 25 minutes, an easy commute. A very pretty town of 25,000. Homes are alot more affordable. Historic Districts and a good mix of condos and houses. You can buy a great condo in the low 100K. Great homes can be bought 80k and up. Homes to a million dollars also. Schools are improving, lower taxes. You can get a feel for the community, check out www.davidsoncountyhappenings.com

It's obvious that 2FarGone2Care really does need to move elsewhere if he or she is not happy in Forsyth County. However, since the population in western Forsyth continues to rise, we must be doing something right. Those of us who live in Lewisville know first-hand what a special community it is. In fact, if you'll take a look at the website, www.LewisvillePhotos.com , you'll see photos and stories demonstrating that life in Lewisville is a broad spectrum of race, age, and interests. Lewisville is the perfect community to raise a family in or to retire in, particularly due to the range of activities offered, many of them taking place regularly in our beautiful town square, Shallowford Square. Blacks, Hispanics, whites, etc. enjoy life in Lewisville. I know them, I meet them, I talk to them. If you have any questions about Lewisville, just ask me! I grew up in Lewisville, moved away, and returned. I love living in Lewisville.

If you are moving to the Triad, you should go to www.RelocationGuide.biz and get one of the Triad Relocation Guide Magazines. They are in color print (heavy like Cosmo, or some other magazine like that) and you don't have to pay postage. It is all the way free. Great relocation resource magazine that is full of information about schools, neighborhoods, medical facilities, utilities, and basic statistical information. Good resource.

You can get one of these cheap ass realtors to help you, they are worse then a used car salesman. Plenty of them around. No real good jobs here. The liberals helped ruin RJ Reynolds a top company that was known to treat people wonderful. That is over. Beware, lot of blacks running wild almost as bad as Greensboro. I would not live in Winston, move to the country it is safer!

To Mr. Jorge Perez Lopez,
President of FLA (Fair Labor Association)

Dear Perez, by the special present we write you as representatives of the Haitian victim workers from Cd Apparel S.A in the Sonapi, industrial park of the Port-Au-Prince Bldg # 31. As you already know on May 04,2007 the Leaders of Hanes brands INC with the complicity of the Haitian employers ended their contract with the Cd Apparel’s Plant without any warning throwing into jeopardy the livelihoods of 500 poor’s workers and their families join with the worst tragedy of the Haitian people caused by the Earthquake taken place on January 12 ,2010 that which get worse the economic and social situation of the workers. Note that the illegal closure of our plant violates the Haitian labor law requires an employer to give damages and full compensation to the victim workers because this injustice impede the international social legislation on work which demand you as defender of the human rights to fix your position so that a solution can be done. For the truth and the history, we’re paid to tell you Mr. Lopez that we keep for Hanes by the law 420.000 pieces of T-shirts without forgetting a lot of materials finishing goods at Sonapi Bldg #31 ( six containers ) we please you to let us know your position on this case and your staff one ??? Of more, you had informed the committee of Cd Apparel on a declaration from Hanes pretending that all the victim of this Plant got already obtained “Full Compensation” but without any proof on this lie! For the knowledge of Humanity, we want to declare that the workers did not receive any compensation and damages from an employer in Haiti explaining the critical situation of the victims after the brutal earthquake … To make light on this case we need have a copy of the payroll’s file (doc of payroll) showing how many employees who have been paid? When? The sum for each one of them? In what currency? Like this the truth should be at the main of the international public opinion and demand to the leaders of Hanes to compensate and repair the poor Haitian workers after 4 years of excellent services for their profit and the one of Cd Apparel’s employer but nothing for the victims: What injustice!!!

We look forward to your response for an immediately resolution to this case.

From the committee of Cd Apparel in Haiti at Sonapi Bldg # 31 !

Date: Saturday,Feb 23,2008

Dear Mr. Knoll/Gerald Evans!

We write to you as representatives of workers from the CD Apparel factory in Port- au Prince, Haiti at sonapi industrial park building # 31. As you know, on May 4, 2007, the Leaders of Hanesbrands ended their contract with CD Apparel S.A without sufficient warning or notice throwing into jeopardy the livelihoods of over 500 workers and their families adding the nasty heartquake destroyed our poor country.The abusing cancellation and illegal closure of CD Apparel’s Plant by the responsibles of Hanes with the complicity of the Haitian's employer violates Haitian labor law which requires an employer to give workers twelves months for damages and repairs without forgetting 45 months that the workers are standing on foot to demand from Hanes “ Compensation and repairs” cause by the brutal cancellation of CD Apparel on may 4, 2007 the workwers can not work and can not support their families in their socio-economic situation very very difficult.. The workers are also owed their severance pay and benefits for 45 months remain unpaid from may 2007 to date. We request that Hanesbrand work with CD Apparel S.A to reach an agreement that will pay these poor workers their severance and benefit pay include their compensation according to the code of conduct and the international legislation for work demanding Hanes’s responsibles to do it for any Plant in any country as they done it for D.R, PUERTO-RICO, CANADA, MEXICO AND U.S.A, once cancelled their Plant.Note that the CD Apparel’s workers: from May 4, 2007 to date are considered as current employees for Hanes and the contractor or owner of this Plant ,every day they are standing to CD Apparel’s gate to demand their due.

For close to five years, over 500 workers produced T-shirts for Hanesbrands. During this period, we were commended for the high quality of our work and production levels. As a corporation whose Code of Conduct promotes workers rights, we are dismayed by your corporation’s lack of response to workers in Haiti and its violation of its own principles. Without our high quality work, Hanesbrands would not have remained as profitable as it did for 5 years to their profit and theone of the CD APPAREL'S owner.It’s for that CD Apparel’s Plant has been in the Caribbean the number one for Hanes about production and quality.

Given the socio- economic reality of Haiti after, the Quake, the illegal closure of CD Apparel, the defiance of Haitian law and the violation of worker rights without forgetting the international social legislation on work reflect a direct violation of your Code of Conduct and international labor rights. We request a meeting with you to discuss the severance owed ( full compensation) to CD Apparel’s workers and a resolution of the illegal closure after 5 years of excellent jobs for Hanesbrands/HBI

We look forward to your response and an immediate resolution to this case

Sincerely yours !

From the committee of CD Apparel: César Medna---------James Moise---------Lonel Henry !!!

Man, why did you lie to her about what a great place Lexington is? It SUCKS. Period. There are NO jobs. NONE. Taxes and City Utilities are sky high so the City can build new buildings all over the place, and purchase more new vehicles and unnecessary equipment. The city is also buying property like there's no tomorrow. No one can afford to heat their home because of outrageous utility charges. I know of a 90 something year old lady whose power bill was over $900 last month! While you're sugarcoating everything, tell her about the non existent crime rate around here. Wrong. Almost daily, Davidson County has murders, countless robberies and home invasions, embezzlements, children getting ran over, gangs, pit bull maulings, drug dealers, shootings, stabbings, and much more. And the cops and the judges are all corrupt, self serving A-holes. They have no interest whatsoever in serving the public fairly. Google Gerald Hege if you wanta know how backwards this place really is. Don't forget about the crackheads everywhere, too. If you drive to the Wal-Mart in Lex, you better damn sure lock your doors when you drive thru the beautiful neighborhood it's in!

Rosa, DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT MOVE HERE, YOU'LL HATE IT.

I'll TOTALLY agree with you on this Scott. This "wonderful" city/ county we live in is getting worse and worse by the day. The City of Lexington must be a great place to work cause there is absolutely NO turnover there... but I imagine so being that even in the small house I live in my power bill was well over $400 last month which is more than double what it usually is. Their workers must be well paid is all I can say.
The cops, judges, lawyers, and city/ county government are some of the most crooked people I have ever seen in my life. The rules and regulations only apply to people outside of their group. And if you believe in "innocent until proven guilty"... you're totally wasting your time here because they don't believe in that concept at all. If you're caught red handed doing something you get a slap on the wrist and told not to do it again if you scream racism. But if you're "accused" of doing something your butt will be in jail before you can say "I didn't...". That's how this place works.
You can't trust anyone... not even your neighbors (ok... especially your neighbors), and don't dare leave anything laying around, or your house or car unlocked. The people around here will steal a car seat if they know they can get money out of it.
The crime rate is horrible, the road conditions suck, there are NO jobs here (been out of work myself for well over a year), and most of the people are rude. If you do move here just make sure if you need to go to Wal-Mart or Food Lion to wait and go after midnight... less rude people to deal with, just make sure you lock your doors on those back streets to Wal-Mart in that lovely drug hood, I mean neighborhood you have to drive through. Or cut your losses and drive to Thomasville or Winston.
Just a suggestion... if you really want to move, don't choose Winston or Lexington. Find a place that has jobs, nicer people, and a lower crime rate. And GOOD LUCK!

Rich Noll, CEO
Hanes Brands, Inc.
1000 East Hanes Mill Rd.
Winston Salem, NC 27105
Mr. Rich Noll:
After taking part in a recent delegation to Haiti sent by the
Industrial Workers of the World, a rank-and-file union representing
workers in a number of nations and a variety of industries, I became
aware of the ongoing struggle of 500 factory workers from cd apparel in sonapi who lost their
jobs as a result of actions taken by your company adding to their bad situation after the heartquake destroyed the poor Haiti on Jan 12,2011. In this case you are
unaware of the circumstances, these workers were employed by a company
called CD Apparel which was under direct contract with Hanes Brands,
Inc. In May of 2007 Hanes Brands withdrew its contract from CD
Apparel,without any kind of notice as demand the code of conduct and the international socio-legislation on work forcing its closure very brutally, and moving that contract to another
plant in Haiti. While these workers are standing to claim full compensation for price of 4 years of excellents jobs made for the profit of the leaders of hanes and theone of cd apparel’s contractor but nothing for these poor workers living in a dark misery very special! Of more i need the kind support of all international organisation to demand from hanes/inc “ Damages and Repairs for these poor employees and thier high cost of living must be taken into
consideration, they have not been compensated in the by any employer for whom
that workers employed under contract by your company in other parts of
the world have been compensated, when in a similar situations.
It is my belief that this amounts to discrimination against the people
of Haiti who deserve far better treatment. Haiti is a nation gripped
by rampant hunger and unimaginable poverty. Rather than corporations
such as yours taking advantage of this terrible situation to increase
their profits on the backs of an already brutalized people, it is
their responsibility to use some of those profits to make life better
for the people they employ. While these workers were not directly
employed by Hanes Brands/hbi, it was the decision of your company that
caused them to lose their jobs, and your company should take
responsibility for that fact.
I strongly urge you to look into the facts of this case, to carefully
consider the demands being made by these workers, and give them their
due by that means “ Full Compensation”. It is my intention, and that of the Industrial Workers of the
World, to build bridges of solidarity with the workers of Haiti, and
to aid them in their struggles. We hope that you will live up to your
social contract in this case, if not we will take further action as we
find appropriate.
Sincerely,
Joseph Lapp II / Ryan Reetz !
