Sparta is a dying town. What do you expect?!? Several factories are starting to lay people off as well. The only bright side is that I keep hearing that federal mogul (wagner for you old tops) signed a deal with Ford and they'll be hiring in the near future. I hope so. It's sad to drive by there and see their parking lot nearly empty when it use to be full of cars.

BASF's business is strong right now. They are about to hire 6. Not bad for a place that doesn't employ very many people.
yep

Federal Mogul only hures to get an order out. Have a friend who they hired for ***8*** days and layed off, they call her evertime they need a large order out, work them just long enough that they can't draw

Oh wow, BASF is hiring 6?!?!? lol. yea Spartas unemployment is solved. Now BASF is a great place to work and the only good paying factory Sparta has now. All the rest are temp places or 7 to 8 dollars an hour jobs. Norcom? no ma'am. My cousin is in management there, and he just told me yesterday that they may have to lay a couple off. nothing major but things are slowly down a bit. Just going by what he said. Maybe you know someone higher up. Also from what I heard Federal Mogul will only be bringing in tempts to fill the positions for new jobs with that new contract. Same way they do in smithville. Use temps. Such a shame. I worked in a factory my whole life and retired form one. But that was before this Temp agency crap took over. My working career didnt make me rich, but I made a good living. and retired with a nice 401k. I hate it so bad that my children and grandchildren are struggling to make ends meat because of the way things are now. Truly sad. A couple of my grandkids recently moved to nashville for work. it's a shame it's so hard to find a job in sparta that will support a family. it's a damn shame!!!

6 does not sound like many, but they are hiring 6 and i heard they are bringing in at least 6 more temps. Percentage wise that isn't bad for a place that has only approx. 60 production employess out of all 4 shifts.

If we had a republican county mayor this crap wouldn't be happening.We should be offering huge incentives to our employers then they would hire more then our local economy would do better.You don't put anything in to it don't expect anything out of it.

But Krystal had terrible food and a horrible location you could not turn left out of that parking lot.Burger King food is typical fast food but again a terrible location you can't turn left out of the parking lot and its completely hidden behind that gas station/convenient store.Location is everything and please vote republican.

Why Yankee that sounds like trickle down.Didn't we try eight years of that and ended up nearly in a depression?

This is my view of trickle down.When the cow eats corn she passes it whole right?Who wants to eat that?Ronald Reagan started that and percapata piled up more debt than any president in history in good economic times.Shove your trickle down where the sun doesn't shine it don't work.

We must vote for Romney, our only chance to save this country. Plain and sincere.

Bad location? they're BOTH IN THE MIDDLE OF TOWN?!?!? You people act like these businesses are in Doyle or on the mountain. It wasn't location. It's this towns population not having enough money support all the businesses. Jeff Young is a Republican btw. Always has been, not sure what rock you're living under. He's proud to be one as well. Jobs were also leaving long before Obama came in. If you look around the state other cities and towns are doing great. White County is on the bottom of all those list.
