Hanesbrand to Close Nine North American Plants; Send Jobs to Asia

I buy my made in the USA underwear here: http://www.unionlabel.com /

Roughly 8100 employees could be impacted following an announcement last week that Hanesbrands would be closing nine North American plants. The underwear maker which includes Hanes, Playtex and Wonderbra plans to eliminate 16 percent of its North American workforce as it moves jobs to Asia. The move will nearly end the companys production relationship with the United States as it closes two of its last remaining plants in the U.S. as well as an inventory storage warehouse. Other countries being impacted by the closures are Mexico, Costa Rica, Honduras, and El Salvador. The company plans to add 6000 jobs in Asia by the end of the year.

2. thanks for the link.
no more Hanes for us here either. I'm not buying from companies that do this anymore. Maybe I'm late to do this, but I've completely had it.

Keep our jobs here, or lose our business. :grr: (you know, I don't think I've ever used this emoticon before, but ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!)

3. Sew your own
I sew all the old man's boxers. They are a perfect fit, in the fabric he likes and to entertain myself, great colors and designs, many seasonal. They never get stolen at the gym.

5. I can't wait for Obama to win
I dream of the day when scumbag companies like this get fined to the hilt for screwing Americans out of jobs.
