Interesting, Forest River has opened an facility near McMinnville, OR within the last year. We see R-Pods and some larger units in the storage lot next to it. When passing on any week day employee lot is full of cars.

Its pretty sad when you can't drug test employees for fear of loosing production goals.
Maybe they need to relocate the factories, but where would you go.

Chicago isn’t far. They could move to the East Side or Hegewisch and hire industrious, enterprising Polish and Mexican Americans and build the things right. But those people won’t work for peanuts and will demand respect.

Ever spent much time in Goshen or Elkhart IN? Or seen it in 2008, then again @ 2010, and again recently? If you work in that industry you know there is no such thing as long term job security unless youre one of the select few (not the vast majority of line workers). Driven by sales. Sales are dropping. They'll shutter those new plants much faster than they built them and slap the real estate signs up in seconds. People who live and work there understand it. The smart ones are prepared for it.

A company is fined $250K for safety violations that uses this picture on their websites and brochures.

[image]

Lets see...10' or 12' above the floor and no railing or other fall protection whatsoever. You think this picture only applies to Forest River? Believe what you wish. Shorts and sleeveless shirts, soft sole shoes, LOL. Where is the company safety nazi? Back in the day on "This Old House" even Norm had enough sense to have a disclamer go across the screen that said "safety guard removed for filming purposes" when he was doing miter cuts without the guard on the saw LOL.

$250K is not even a hiccup on Warren and Charlies ole balance sheet. If that would of been OSHA instead of Indiana's state version of same I bet the fines would of been double that amount.
