BREAKING NEWS,this just in, Darrell and Darrell have just reported that the reason behind the two closings behind the Wayne co. plants is due to a lack of education. The average person of the two plants had a max. 6 grade education which is in line with all of Wayne county. We tried to contact Wayne county spokesperson Sue in Wayne county.aka happy in Wayne county,aka Sara, aka unicorn, aka ha ha, but she declined comment because she told us that she ran out of POLIGRIP and could not speak. We will have more at 5 and 6

You will be waiting for days for our beloved spokeswoman as poligrip is hard to come by in Wayne County. She may be grabbing some Peperation H too due to the highly "inflammatory" content.

Parker is a head count company- if you aren't producing a large enough profit for them- they start looking to trim the budget by "laying off" permanently their employees. Everyone is expendable at Parker except for management. My nearly two year experience with them was awful. You always felt frightened about losing your job. No one helped anyone out and mostly everyone was out trying to impress management and making other fellow employees look bad- just so they would still have their jobs. It was just a terrible climate to work in and it wore me down. When I finally got "layed off" it was actually a blessing- they put me out of my misery. I am now a much better person away from that awful place and am moving ahead to brighter days. There are now school programs in place in many parts of the country for displaced workers and it may cost you nothing at all to attend a local community college- please check it out with your local Career Link. I did, and I will have a degree in a year in a field that is growing and is employment stable.
I feel bad for those who will also get the Parker boot- but I also think they may come to find this is a blessing in disguse. Think of it this way, Parker is just an awful place to work. You can find better employment with a company who appreciates your hard work.
Good luck to all the displaced workers.
