Merillat laid off 32 workers this month; more layoffs could come

Merillat Industries has laid off at least 60 workers in the past few months, including 32 on December 1st.
The 900+ employee plant in Madison Township asked for voluntary layoffs, the Jackson Citizen Patriot reported Saturday.
The layoffs are a result of the nation's weak new housing market.
A company executive said he wasn't sure if this was the last of layoffs at the company, which also has its corporate headquarters here in Adrian.
"We haven't had to deal with this in quite a while," Larry Wilson, director of marketing services for the Masco Builder Cabinet Group, which owns Merillat and Quality Cabinets, told the Jackson newspaper.

It's interesting to note taht the Merillat family gave thousands to Walberg and other conservative causes, including Club for Growth and RI CFG candidate Steve Laffey.

Let's see how much this pays off for the company and what "favors" our "morally principled" congressman does for the company.

Bloggers should stay on this one!

Walberg doesn't care about laid-off workers. He probably thinks the laid off workers plight was a message from God that they were not living right.
