Outsourcing those jobs to China no doubt. How long are we Americans going to stand for this b.s. before we riot in the streets?

This is no big deal,it's only 161 jobs. Our Republican Governor and ex-congressman Mike Pence has said in just a few weeks into his term he has created hundreds of jobs. These people will find a job within hours of their last day at the plant--if they're not lazy. As a congressman and now as our governor,Republican Mike Pence has worked HARD for this state. This is why we're a few steps ahead of the Philippines in job creation. Paper products are so 1920.......What is needed in today's economy is a hat factory. Hats are the answer to our woes. Hats are in demand. There will always be another McDonald's restaurant developed that will provide good wages and great jobs for the citizens of this great state. And the good thing is many workers at such restaurants wear hats. That is job creation. That is forward thinking. That spells success for Indiana.

This closure also serves to remind us that high wages for workers is killing our country. We need to lower wages.$1.65 an hour is a good wage. You can own a home,drive a decent automobile,send your children to college,and save for an earnest retirement on such a wage.

I'm just glad this closure will not inconvenience the stockholders of this company.

In this time of great economic prosperty, and abundent middle class wage jobs, what is 161 jobs except to those families impacted by job loss.
After all they "the government" are considering extending jobless unemployment benefits.
Government can not continue to print, print, print money, and have cash outflow grossly exceed income, and not expect a Weimar Republic crash.
Other then that, it is all good.

If you were lucky enough to redistribute the wealth of the 1%, you would end up poorer than you are today.
The question remains: How much does one have to earn to qualify as the 1%? How much property can be owned without having too much? Did you ever consider working and bring yourself up from the bottom, instead of expecting others to provide? Consider yourself too good to get your hands dirty?

"too much capacity in its litho paperboard plants": why didn't the article mention where the OTHER plants are located? Mexico? China? Why, when you read these plant closing articles, it never mentions where the disappearing jobs are disappearing to. Could it be that the "job creators" don't want you to know. Could it be that The Indianapolis Star is a Republican rag?

The French knew what to do with traitors and sympathizers. Off with their foolish heads too.

And after Marie told them to eat cake, since they had no bread.
And once again the question of what financially is considered to be the 1% is avoided.
