I could not have been more saddened or shocked to hear that Newell is closing up shop in Wooster. I mean, everyone kind of seen the handwriting on the wall up in Manitowoc, but Wooster? I have been to both plants and I just can't believe it. 850 seems to be the magic number; wasn't it about the same # of jobs lost up in Manitowoc?
When will this all end? It pisses me off to no end seeing good hard working Americans loosing their jobs. Wal-Mart also pisses me off. I've NEVER shopped there and NEVER will! I also read the recent article in "Fast Company" and it was an eye opener. Anyone that has not read it should. Like someone earlier stated so eloquently:"F$ck Wall mart!"
How about these young, know it all phoenix kids who are just here for a few years for some resume fodder? I know for a fact two kids in our marketing department, who have since moved on by the way, racked up over $40K each in personal Travel and Entertainment in a six month period alone. 40 f$cking thousand dollars in T&E in six months! Now multiply that by hundreds of others in the NWL organization who do the same. And they wonder why we can't make our numbers?! Give me a f$cking break! Or how about when they cut out all FedEx overnight after the dismal 3rd quarter numbers? The dumb asses from marketing couldn't even figure out how to use the FedEx computer for anything other than priority overnight; that was all they ever used for everything they shipped !!!They were all spending money like it was going out of style the last year and a half.
I could go on and on. Just needed to vent a little��..
My best to all of our hardworking co-workers in Wooster. God Bless you all!!
