Johnson Controls Inc.plans to permanently close its factory in Hudson, in St. Croix County, leaving 51 employees without jobs.

Layoffs are expected to begin on Dec. 14 and continue through Feb. 28, 2012, according to a plant closing notice filed Monday with the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development. Some of the employees are represented by the United Auto Workers union Local 879.
How much more does he think we are going to take?

The gales of November come on the 15th.

  1. West central WI is a little different, though.

    We have the ever-expanding Twin-Cities market not far away, cheap and undeveloped land, and a workforce of people who are more than willing to work for peanuts since there is not much for other alternatives.
