The days of the stamp-factories and the 40-week paid vacations are done. Good riddance.

I have a very grave concern for the fishery of NL. My father was a fisherman all of his life and died at the age of 86. The fishery sustained us - my great grandfather, grandfather, my father and us as a family of 11. The NL government is letting all the fishery go out the window. Why are all these fish plants closing down - frankly because the processers have become greedy, and the government doesn't give one hoot about the small guy the worker - the bread earner of the family. The government is more concerned about the big companies like O- I and the group - these companies are the contributors to the Party - scratch my back and I'll scratch yours. This company has become too rich on the backs of NL and uses his political clouth!!! Amazing! The Government is only thinking about those inside the overpass quite frankly, and they are letting the Rural Areas die out on purpose, so there goes the communities, the fishery and forestry, just to have the Inner Circle of the Overpass become bigger, more expensive to live in, and letting the very fabric of NL Community Culture die out for their own gains and purposes. It's time for all Newfoundlanders that consider themselves in Rural Areas to search for Rural Supporters to take over government and have our NL culture!!!!!!!!!!! Don't allow foreigners to come in and change our whole world with their junk! AS NEWFOUNDLANDERS AND LABRADORIANS LETS STAND UP FOR OUR PROVINCE AND OUR RURAL AREAS! WHY SHOULD WE MOVE WITHIN THE INNER CIRCLE OF THE OVERPASS! THAT'S MY STORY AND I'M STICKING TO IT!! ARE YOU???? IF NOT, WE'LL DIE IN THE BIG CITY AND NO ONE, NO ONE WILL CARE! LETS PUT THE FIGHT ON! COME ON BAY-MEN! LET's DO IT!!!!!! GOD BLESS!

The employees did this to themselves. Everytime you turned around they had something to complain about. They were never satisfied, now look where it has gotten them. Merry Christmas.

There is only one reason why fish plants are closing all over Newfoundland and Labrador ... 50 cents an hour wages in China ... It's no more complicated than that!! Plant in the wrong location? BS

Note to FFAW, and all the other intellectually challenged: if a plant is in the wrong location, it is not a "perfect plant" ---- it is a white elephant. And after years of government interference and political meddling in the fishery, most plants in Newfoundland were decreed to be built or sustained in the very worst of wrong places...completely for short-term political expediency. And besides the less-than-complicated purpose of extending politicans' careers, this approach has been a pathetic, predictable disaster.
