We all knew of the lay off coming for months but we were all told that they were working on another contract and would be trying to save our jobs, haha what a joke we are all unemployed now!

Im going to be honest i worked for this company from the day they opened up there in East Greenbush 3 1/2 years ago and the company has done nothing but hire and fire people left and right,I have never seen such a high turnover of employees before in my life. When i stated there all seemed so great with the hours and benefits and then the pay was not all that bad, and we were all told in the begining that it was a w 10 year contract so i thought this would be a good place to park for the next 10 years. Then 3 years into this they were all talking about saving money and how people down south can do what we do alot cheaper and that all of the jobs we were doing has went to KY and we would no longer have jobs come either the end of jan, feb, march depending what date was picked for us. Here we are in april and yes we are all laid off but a couple chosen ones that have been asked to stay with the new contract that they signed and the rest of us were shown the front door.
