Many of those people had worked there for years. That's too bad. Unfortunatley for these people they will hit the unempoyment line and be competing with 48,000,000 million forerign workes that the US Govenment has imported over the past 20-years.

Whaddya mean, unemployment line, blingo? These people just need to take your guy Romney's advice and borrow money from their parents and start 130 new small businesses! And wildbill1987, yeah, it's Dayton's fault that a Wisconsin business is closing a plant in Brainerd and two other cities not in Minnesota. Take out a government loan and go back to school.

The anti-biz left can't admit that their anti-biz policies are destroying our country. When we are all in the soup line, they will still claim it had nothing to do with them.

Newspapers and magazines are shifting to online versions,decreasing the demand for paper. The costs of direct mail has increased over the years to the point that it does not have a reasonable ROI. Ink on paper use to drive many mills, that is a thing of the past. It's no one fault, it is only what it is.
