The Saga Continues....America Shutting Down
COUNCIL BLUFFS — One meatpacking plant closing. One production shift ending. 1,930 jobs gone.
Just two days after John Morrell & Co. said that it would close its pork-processing plant in Sioux City, Iowa, Tyson Foods said Friday that it will end one shift at a Council Bluffs plant and shift some production to facilities in Tennessee and Texas.
The Morrell move, effective in April, eliminates about 1,450 jobs. Losing the second shift at the Tyson plant will lay off about 480 of its 1,300-member work force.
The second shift case-ready production at the Bluffs plant — which packages steaks, roasts, chops, ground beef and other items ready for the grocery meat case — likely will be ended March 22, Tyson said.
Soon fewer and fewer will be able to afford to simply maintain a house.....much less buy one, purchase a car, afford insurance, or take a vacation.....simply eating and heating will be massive burdens for millions.
As the economy slows.....more and more will lose their jobs contracting tax receipts to such low levels that government will be unable to function in its present form....something will have to change or some event will force us to change.......my guess is it will be sooner than many anticipate.
Hawaii lost about 10 percent of its union-represented jobs in 2009 and the percentage of workers in labor unions also fell.
Sure Benny The B.....unemployment only rose a few percentage points last year.....and it is about to get much much higher.

Keep dreaming my fellow fools.........soon you will wake up to the peceived nightmare that is reality. But this too will pass......the only question now is how.......as it is not the end of the world, only the end of a world as you know it in preparation for something few can see at the present time.
