Gildan is a corpate vampire. All of our elected officials in Montgomery stink! President Obama needs to check out Dekalb County's economic situation.

To Ronron..Our jobs were going overseas before President Obama was ever into office. If I remember everything right it was mostly all white men who signed the bill to let the jobs go overseas. But our latest jobs that are closing is going to South Carolina.. I just hope people dont mind bad quality socks because that is what you will be getting from the sock companys overseas poor cheap crap

You can thank Clinton for the fact that so much of what you buy comes from Mexico, China and other countries. Not just socks...look at the labels on all the Christmas candy on the shelf.
Want to save some money next time you go shopping?
read the labels and only buy American made.

More job losses reported,only thing left of gildan a few knitting mills and the high paid jobs at Old D.C. I hope the knitting mills stay but Gildan could really save money if the rest of the Country Club sets jobs were offshored at about one tenth of the wages that the bigshots make.

Unemployment rate 13.8% in Dekalb County for decades our local government pandered to the hoisery mill industry. When the conditions were right the owners sold out to ruthless big international companies leaving only old abandoned useless buildings and unemployed workers. I think Ft. Payne will come out of this thing stronger and more diverse but it will take time and effort by everyone involved.
