Lay Offs Expected At Central Kentucky Plant

A Montgomery County plant is set to lay off more than 100 employees.

Transcraft Corporation, a trailer production plant in Mount Sterling, announced it intends to shut down by the end of the year.

110 employees will be laid off. Transcraft says future orders and overall demand for platform trailers will determine if it will reopen.

    Chuck,it figures you'd blame Bush...it's not his fault the demand for these trailers are down.That's how demand/supply works,no matter who's president.The democrats always blame Mr. Bush when something bad happens.That's ignorant!Really!I hate that these people will lose their jobs...it really sucks.At any rate, what do you want Mr. Bush to do;move them in the white house with him?Then you'd complain about that,and be mad because you didn't get to go.And Mark,it doesn't say the company is moving,it said "Transcraft says future orders and overall demand for platform trailers will determine if it will reopen."Although I do agree the gov. needs to get rid of these illegals,this shut down has nothing to do with them.Like I said-demand/supply.

    The next time Bush brags about the economy will someone with some clout see to it that he comes to the Gateway to show him the truth of the matter. I really feel for these people and pray they find employment soon.

    Lets keep those trade agreements that are giving our country away humming. Maybe we can let a few more illegals into the state and do these jobs. We have everyone in the American family working part time or low wage jobs, and the government considers this full employment. How much more damage can the illegal alien invasion in Kentucky cause our suffering American working families?
