700 Jobs Being Cut
As of July 2013 as the company says it is taking steps to “improve supply chain productivity,” according to a company release. Employees were told of the closure during a 6 a.m. meeting Thursday at the plant.
“We employ about 700 people at the Sacramento plant and unfortunately those jobs will be eliminated,”
said Campbell Soup Company spokesperson Anthony Sanzio.
“This is a tough day for the company, for the employees. No one likes to do this.”
The company says the Sacramento plant, built in 1947, is the oldest in its network and has the highest production costs on a per-case basis. (Well duh!) Many of the employees at the plant have worked there their entire lives, and several told CBS13 they had no idea what they’d do next. Most of them voted for the Kenyan, so this shouldn’t come as a surprise. But it obviously does. They just can’t believe someone would actually get tired of their shit.
“This is devastating, really devastating,” worker Valerie Starr said. “A lot of us have been working here for years and we’re at that age where it’s hard to find other jobs.”
How do you like that Hope & Change now, Valerie?
We have a Campbell Soup factory in Paris, TX, but they won’t rehire you, Valerie. So don’t even think about it, Valerie. We don’t want your type and you won’t be welcome, Valerie. You dumb asses just stay there. No doubt you will, and no doubt you’ll vote for him again. Your gonna love California even more when the lights go out! Valerie…
