This Southern Town Made Wooden Coffins. Now A Mexican Town Will. - The Huffington Post
Batesville Casket has planned a job fair Friday for its soon-to-be-laid-off employees. Unlike the workers at Carrier Corp., the Indiana plant Trump pressured to stay open, the Batesville Casket employees aren’t unionized. Part of the reason the Carrier case received so much coverage is that workers were able to complain to the media without fear of getting fired. The Batesville case is much more typical, as hundreds of American firms lay off workers and shift production abroad every year with hardly any attention in the national media.
