    Whirpool Shrinks Again

    Whirlpool to cut 5,000 jobs and close an Arkansas factory - Oct. 28, 2011

    The job cuts amount to 10% of the company's workforce in Europe and North America. Whirlpool (WHR, Fortune 500), based in Benton Harbor, Mich., said it plans to shutter its plant in Fort Smith, Ark., by mid-2012, and production from that factory "will be consolidated into current North American sites."
    Whirlpool Chief Executive Jeff Fettig blamed the job cuts on weak demand and higher costs.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Sucks big-time for those losing their jobs, but Whirlpool/Maytag can **** off.
