I'm glad to see Mountain Valley is shutting down.

They employed virtually only illegals when they opened their doors. The illegals were told to declare they were married and had 6 children so they wouldn't have to pay any Federal Income Taxes.

They also failed to comply with OSHA and TOSHA, which caused the horrible death of a 14 year old illegal Mexican boy because there was no Federally Mandated Lock Out program.

Apparently they're planning on shutting down the Morristown TN plant and moving it to Frankfort, KY where they will open up a larger plant and will increase their employees from a current 41 to 100.

So you're mad they hired illegals and you're mad they killed an illegal? What a broad stance, Larry Craig.:-)

So you're wanting to defend a company that hired (hires?) illegals and it's ok to kill a 14 year old boy in machines that didn't meet OSHA standards?

So it's ok to work illegals AND ok to kill them?
Interesting concept.
Did you by chance vote for Obama?

I was joking with you. I'm gonna bring you a sense of humor to the cookout. Didn't you get the wide stance Larry Craig joke? You take this internet thing way too seriously.

When there's a needless death in the work place, I don't find that to be funny.

Especially when the death could have been prevented with a $5.00 padlock.

Mountain Valley in Ky. has already has the honor of being a terrible place to work and it's only been open for 3 1/2 months.
Is that why they shut down in Tenn.?
I bet in the last 3 1/2 months they have had 400 people quit or get fired for made up reasons.

I bet in the last 3 1/2 months that at least 400 people have looked at you and thought "wow, what a goofy looking jhackass"

Soooo, what 'made up reason' did they fire you for,eh?? Or, wait!! I bet you're mad because even with a high turnover rate they wouldn't even consider hiring you,lol.

You need to adjust your suck, son. It's redlining.

A man at the plant in Frankfort, ky at the Nextlife plant, where MVR was moved lost his hand last night on a machine. OSHA needs to get in there quick. He is only 24 yrs old.

i worked there for 6 years and i arrived after the death of the kid i was told by other employees that it had something to do with the mexican mafia.. and it was a shit hole to work for when timothy haynes took over when chris dickson was there as plant manager he was a ass but he kept us working when the economy went bad and i was there when they got rid of the illegals as well it was a place you love to hate...it was a job thats all i can say and a nasty one at that not many white ppl would like to get that dirty thats why they hired mexicans and further more on the hiring illegals it was the two hispanic receptionists doing the paper work fixing it and doctoring it

Why do you people want to get OSHA involved? OSHA is just another government agency like the FDA. Government interference in business.
