Would that be Thomas Industries? Off to Mexico while the mexicans stay here and mooch off of us. They don't even have the good sense to follow the jobs that they are taking from us. What we should do is boycott all sales of these products here in the U.S. Screw 'em just like they did us!!!!

Won`t work. I`ll give two examples. Back in the 90`s wal-mart used a sales pitch " Buy American first " to promote American business and American workers. If I remember correctly it flopped because other retail businesses used cheaper products from over seas. I personally believe wal-mart only did this to say they tried because they knew what the future was but the point is people will go to the store they think will be cheaper. The other example is when I owned a c-store in White Co. I had alot of my customers complain about non-americans buying up all the other c-stores but I noticed those same people going into the same stores they complained about. Again, people will go to businesses they think is the cheapest.

I blame our own goverment and now we are seeing the fruits of our own goverments labor.

This plant was suppose to be a " green job " factory but low and behold...off to mexico it goes.

Is this new? First I've heard of it. Wow, we can hardly stand to have another employer leave.

Sucks to be in the workforce in White Co.

Absolutely I support them. I go to the club there a couple of times a month. It's a legal business. Nothing illegal that I know if is going on there. What's the problem? You don't like women that's your problem.

There are actually a few that work there that went through this exact same thing when they worked at Mallorys. I hate for them as well.
