In an internal newsletter at Whirlpool Corp.'s Evansville, Ind., plant, Paul Coburn, vice president of Whirlpool's Evansville Division, says the decision to close the plant and kill 1,100 jobs will not be reconsidered and warns workers about attending a Friday rally protesting the shutdown:
...these negative activities will only hamper employees when they look for future jobs....We fear that potential employers will view the actions of a few and determine whether they would want to hire any of Evansville Division employees in the future.You can read more about Coburn's memo on The Huffington Post here.
