on Paper Mills
Like it has been said a few times, this is sad news to hear. The economy has been hard on all of us but certainly within certain niches, it has been harder that most. Paper mills seem to be one of those that are getting hit pretty hard.
The hardest part about it, is that many of these people working at the mill have been there so many years and maybe even close to retirement. That will most likely cause problems with the quality of life in the later stages of life. A friend of mine was looking how to start a daycare business, because she thought that everyone needed childcare, and yet she even has been affected with the problems because when one field is affected everyone is affected. Who knows though, there was a lot of change with the government recently, with the elections. Hopefully it means that industries such as Paper Mills and the automotive industry will be on the rebound.
It is definitely something to hope for. Best wishes to all those affected in this recent layoff.
