Hershey's Chocolate Company Leaving United States

Hershey's Moving to Mexico, Cutting 1,500 Jobs
US chocolate maker Hershey's has announced it will be moving 10% of its operations out of the US and cutting 1,500 jobs from its global work force. The three-year restructuring plan will save Hershey's US$190 million per year.

Spokesperson Kirk Saville didn't give any real details, saying only that "Some (plants) will be expanded, some will be downsized and some will close." The company will be opening a new plant in Mexico under the plan.

Hershey's President Richard H. Lenny said: "We recognize this will involve considerable change over the next three years, and intend to make this transformation of our supply chain as smooth as possible for our employees and customers."

Mumbles is right its old news...but they are cutting more jobs than that. You know what a Heath toffee bar is? Its only made in one town that is Robinson, Il - the plant where it was started was Heath, then sold to Leaf candies, then to Hershey. Well anyway my mom has been at that plant for over 40 years and they are talking about shutting that plant down...they have already shut a shit load of lines down. That means a majority of the town will be unemployed the only other decent paying job in town is the Marathon refinery. Crawford County Il can not afford to lose another company in the last 20 years - at least 4 other companies have left to Mexico and the town still has not recovered. I am just glad most of my family has retired from there and that my mom is elgible for retirement. Oh how Im gonna miss the sweet smell of chocolate as I drive through town.
