Pittsburgh-based logistics firm Genco in January plans to close its facility in Lebanon County, according to a notice filed with the state Department of Labor and Industry.

The permanent closure of the warehouse at 2869 William Penn Highway in Bethel Township will include the layoff of 70 employees, according to the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification, or WARN, letter filed with the state. The layoffs are expected to begin Jan. 18.

The WARN letter does not specify the reason for the warehouse closing. Genco representatives did not immediately return calls for comment.

In 2006, Genco upgraded the 550,000-square-foot warehouse with new technology, including robotics, radio frequency identification, or RFID, and hands-free voice technology to help workers process orders...

The googoo eyed slogan chanters of 2008 and 2012 will be singing different tunes as the economy heads over a cliff. It won’t be much fun to rub their faces in the very crap they wished so assiduously for, becasuse the rest of the economy will be in desperate shape as well. I suspect that won’t stop me. My slogan for 2014 & beyond? “Don’t come crying to me, you got what you wished for.”

Even worse, wait til 10-15% of US businesses reduce every employees’ hours to 28 or less to avoid the 0bamacare mandate. We can already see this coming. So workers are going to have to find multiple jobs to get by, but that means more gas and more waking and working hours. Many workers will have to work a job just to pay the mandated health costs or pay the fine.

Gonna be swell, just swell.

These people who worship obama don’t realize that even obama doesn’t know what’s in the healthcare bill. He’s a puppet and says what he’s told to say. Thus the teleprompter. And I believe he is given the questions in advance for every interview. And that includes
Bill Ego-reilly.
