400 To Lose Jobs As Shop Vac Announces Williamsport Factory Closing

Given the shift to manufacturing Shop-Vac parts in Shenzhen, China and in Hai Duong, Vietnam and then shipping the parts to Feldchar for assembly, one might assume that this is simply another step in Shop-Vac’s outsourcing plan.

Is it a union operation? That would explain it.

Oh my, that’s very sad

This is sad news. This, I think, is an example of a reason to not tie health insurance with employment. It was a good benefit in its day but not any more. The companies should discontinue and increase the wages by the amount that they invest in health and welfare benefits. Individuals could then obtain their own insurance if wanted. Reduces overhead and expenses for all. Just a thought.
My sympathies to the workers and their families.

The reason to attach healthcare to your job is specifically to hold you at your job. This is the only country in the world that doesn't provide health insurance to it's citizens...and that's because the corporations want it that way. If you had health insurance, independent of your job, then you could just leave it whenever you wanted, without the fear that you and your family would be at risk. You could leave to find a better job, based simply on the merits of the job. Companies could raise wages, because they wouldn't have to factor in healthcare costs. People might actually be happier.
But I'm sure that the idea of medicare for everyone is some evil "socialist/communist" idea, and a great country like the this one would never even dream of doing it...even though every other country in the modern world does it.

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Free, Free, Free, more free stuff. I deserve this, I deserve that,, you owe me. More, more, more..... it's no wonder companies close down and move away to other countries that DO NOT provide health care insurance.

I'm sure those sweat shop kids get great dental and health coverage.

Well Mr. Plumb , according to 555 they do. So you may be mistaken.

Its possible that 6:37 works for a living and buys his/her own health care and isn't looking for a free-ride.

No matter how many times you comment back smart witty comments 1:51 it won't ever get you that hug your dad never gave you.

1:53, if that’s the case(which I doubt), then 6:37 is a moron. Bragging about the desire to pay staggering premiums for shitty health coverage (which is what the majority of “hard working Americans do), is a problem. The government has convinced us that we should be proud or honored to work our asses off, just maintain a level of debt that we’ll have our entire lives. So the working people fight amongst themselves, about whose a harder worker, or whose on ‘welfare’...so that we don’t all join together and ask why aren’t we treated like the hard working citizens from the other industrialized nations? It’s criminal how the government treats its citizens, but it’s even worse when the citizens agree with the government treating us that way. It’s not whining, or asking for a handout...it’s about making this country take care if it’s citizens the way it should, instead of being complicit to allow the corporations to slowly bleed us dry.

I just wish you would get your name straight, is it Plum or Plumb? Or maybe you just don't know who your father is.

405, thats a good smoke-screen, but I would rather work for what I have . The government hasn't "convinced" me about anything. I KNOW that I should earn what I have. If you want to be treated like the workers from other nations then move there and join into the socialism.
You say : "it's about making this country take care of it's citizens the way it should" . "MAKING THIS COUNTRY"???,
This country OWES YOU NOTHING! Get off your fat ass and do something for this country. Stop looking for a handout and contribute.
You have no work ethic, no self respect, and are a total loser . (thats what your wife told me) now (Ex-wife)

Geez 7:04, nobody is disputing the work ethic. The original point was that these people are now losing their jobs and, because of that, they are now losing their health insurance as well.

7:04, dang! Are you on pills or something??😂

7:04...wait, are you the same moron as 6:37? So you’re like a double moron?? hahaha

4:05 said...

7:04, I’m not sure what triggered you and made you attack me, but, while this is really none of your business, I can assure you that I’ve never been unemployed in 40yrs. I run a large successful company with nearly 1000 employees up and down the east coast. So, check yourself. I know what I’m talking about when it comes to issues of labor and employee benefits. This country DOES owe its citizens a good life. You’re not a visitor here, this is YOUR country...you’re not a guest. Your work and your taxes make this country, so it’s yours. The government works for you...or at least it’s supposed to. Unfortunately, however, right now the government works for big billionaire corporations, and they dictate who gets what....not the tax paying citizens. So cool your freakin jets bro...and stop being such a cuck. The corporations want more people like you to proudly say how hard you work(for them), and how you will happily pay for your healthcare(so the big insurance corporations can just get bigger and richer). Sheesh!

Honestly this feels like a good conversation. I feel for all of you especially 4:19 you sad little hollow shell of a turtle. I hope you have a good day. And I wish those who lost their jobs the best on finding employment quickly.
