MetroRegion Kansas City News: Chillicothe MO Loses Manufacturing Plant ... To Mexico

This news is actually a week old- but news nonetheless...

The CHILLICOTHE (MO) CONSTITUTION-TRIBUNE announced on October 4 that HanesBrands is closing it's "Gear For Sports" plant and moving the product line produced there to Mexico (the country- not Missouri).

At least 125 people will be losing their jobs at the plant that opened in 2001.

A HanesBrand spokesperson- Craig Peterson- told the CC-T “We regret the loss of jobs for our Chillicothe employees ... the Chillicothe plant is a well-run operation with a tremendous workforce. This decision is not a reflection on the capabilities and dedication of our employees. We would like to thank them for their contributions over the years.”

 Yeah- right un-American- greedy- Corporate you-know-whats....
