Comment Summer factory work (Score 1) 179

I was employed for the summer at a large knitting mill. I despised the job. NAFTA was passed, and before the ink could dry the company announced that it was moving all operations to Mexico, laying off most of their staff and leaving a skeleton crew to break down the factory. They didn't fire anyone because, you know, then they'd have to provide unemployment benefits. So everyone just got laid off instead. I can't say I was sad to have lost the job. I did however feel bad for the people who had been working at the mill 40+ years who were losing their livelihood and had no other employable skills.
