Kinda like "thinking outside the box"

Some of those laid off may not have to wait long......I just read on RVB that THOR has purchased the former HR towable facility from ASV and plans to build more of their motorhomes there.

I was not involved in the meetings so not sure what else was discussed with doing the shut down. I have seen people let go that you would never think would go "pysco" but did and ended up doing LOTS of damage and ended up costing the company a boat load of money. Now they either meet them at the door and let them know or they MIGHT escort them to their desk to empty it out or they might set up a time and place to meet to pick up the box with all their stuff that someone else packed up.
