I work at Parker Booneville, and it is so sad to see it go. It is really hard on the people that have been there for 20+ years. These companies have got to stop sending our work to other countries. All of the people at corporate office will soon be without jobs also. We worked very hard and the labor price was cheap in Booneville. A regular operator was only making $11.80 hr. top out pay. But I guess since it is all going to Mexico now they will only be out $3 an hr. We need jobs so bad in North Mississippi.
