mad smiley mad smiley mad smiley First hershy candy company is clossing part of their operation to move to MEXICO LIKE SO MANY OTHER COMPANIES HAVE.So the gready owners can put more money in their pockets and not have to pay taxes thanks to Bush and his dam free trade.
packing houses now perfer mex and samolins and vietnaze workers as they will work for less money. Greed here again They are saying to HELL with AMERICANS lets bring in foriners and fire or get rid of hard working american workers. Now CIRCUT CITY is going to fire 4,000 employies to hire workers for less money I think you are going to see other people in there other than AMERICANS What have we fought for and diead for since the american revuloution so other people can come in here and tell us what to do. I'am tired of this so called POLITICAL PROPER CORection or what ever they call it. to me all it means give into foringers.To hell with them. I'am not against people who come here if they want to play fare and do what is right But when they come into our cities and towns and bring in their drugs and gangs that is to much. I have a solution for that but will keep it to myself. I have seen towns and cities ruined by forign gangs .I like my smores but I guess I will have to make them with something else now. I WILL NOT BUY ANY HERSHY PRODUCTS NOR ANYTHING FROM CIRCUT CITY. Also i think it is time to bring prayer back into schools and if other people do not like it tough . Also they are bannig books in school latest is a classic that every body should read Huckel Berry friend. they already outlawed Little house on the praiee and other books. Maybe we should give this country to MEXICO , Samallia, Vietnam . Our so called goverment is allowing this. If Americans say anything they want to put us in jail fire us or fine us. I do not care if this offends anybody this is my contry and yours I will not give into other nations if they do not like me or our type of culture get out. radio should play the fighting side of me by Merle Hagger more often mad smiley mad smiley mad smiley

Well you talk about alot of things that are making you made. Let me address atleast one of them.

When companies decide to close plants here and move them to another country where they can produce things cheaper they are doing something that is well with in their rights. They are a private company and can do what ever they want. There are ALOT of people in this country that get mad about it but they would also get mad if the government stepped in and forced them not to leave becuase most people want government to stay out of private business affairs.

We just can't have it both ways. A private business as to be allowed to do what they feel is best for their company and their stock holders. If you held stock in Hersheys or Curcuit City you probably wouldn't mind becuase profits would be going up so you are making more money.


When you talk about forgieners coming into this country you seem to think they are all bad. That they are all bringing drugs, gangs and other trouble with them. Really that is a very very small number causing the trouble. And I would guess the number of forgieners causing trouble can't even compare to the numbers of Americans that dealing and buying drugs, running with gangs, and in general causing problems.

I have read so many rants like this on pretty much every fishing forum that the web has to offer and frankly it starts to get old. There isn't any tolerance in America, maybe there never has been.

Our country was built on immigration, every single person in America with the exception of the Native Americans is here becuase your family immigrated here. So how can we be mad at other groups for doing the same thing all our families did? Some what hypocritical I think. For crying out loud its how America was founded.

How many people here are Irish? When the Irish got here everyone hated them becuase they were taking jobs and supposedly causing problems, same thing with the Polish, and alot of other groups. Now we are doing the same thing to these new groups coming here. Hispanic people face some of the same issues the Irish did, apparently we haven't progressed as far as we thought over the last 100 years.

I guess now that we are all here and comfortable we should just change the principles of our country becuase we were the only ones that really had the right to come to a new country. Apparently we are better then the everyone else.

When I hear people spouting off about America it really seems like most people have forgotten how this country was founded. Maybe try to keep it in mind, becuase the things that you complain about are the exact same things that made this country what it is. So if you don't like them maybe you are the one that needs to leave.

no I don't think all people are bad .But Most gang members are comming from other countries If people want to come here and work pay taxes and do what is right then fine. ya companies have the right to move out of this country but what a bout the lives they destroy? What I make now is what I made 20 years a go cause companies and stock holders are just plain greedy how many millons do they need in there pocket I'am not against people making a lot of money but to hurt others in doing so is not right. We have to alow them to practice their religion but if we practice ours thats a no no cause we may ofend them to bad I don't care

Hershey Cutting 1500 Jobs


America's largest chocolate company is cutting 1500 jobs. The Hershey Company is refusing to say if any of the employees at its Reading plant will be affected. The company says the cuts will be made over three years. It will also build a new facility in Mexico.
A spokesman for the union that represents chocolate workers in Hershey and Reading says he thinks the company will need to cut even more jobs if Hershey adds the Mexico plant.


But for as long as i can remember Hershey chocolate was made in Canada..maybe 5 years or maybe even longer..

Hershey Canada Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of The Hershey Company (New York Stock Exchange: HSY) that manufactures, distributes and sells confectionery, snack, refreshment and grocery products in Canada. Major brands include CHIPITS, EAT-MORE, GLOSETTE, HERSHEY'S, JOLLY RANCHER, OH HENRY!, REESE, and TWIZZLER.

The story of Hershey is a captivating tale, spanning nearly a century and a half of industrial and social change. It tells of how one determined pioneer from rural Pennsylvania built an international company, a town to go with it, and a chocolate and confectionery sensation.

In Canada, it all started in 1962. After years of studying the Canadian confectionery market, The Hershey Company constructed its first plant outside of Hershey, Pennsylvania - in Smiths Falls, Ontario. Smiths Falls was selected because of the plentiful supply of milk and water. Smiths Falls was chosen also because of its adequate labour source, its location on direct rail lines and suitable transportation facilities

This location was also ideally situated between the two main marketing areas of Toronto and Montreal. Apparently, the police chief of the times stood out on the town's main street and stopped the first car with foreign license plates and proceeded to try to sell the town of Smiths Falls to its occupants. Luckily for Smiths Falls, the occupants of the car happened to be The Hershey Company delegates scouting the area for possible sites for a new plant.

The Smiths Falls plant was the first facility within The Hershey Company to incorporate a Visitors Gallery inside the facility. The plant's official opening was in June of 1963 and the Visitor's Gallery received 960 visitors on opening day.

The Smiths Falls facility began production in 1963 with 200,000 square feet of working space capable of producing 200,000 bars a day. The products introduced at the facility were 5¢ and 10¢ chocolate bars, instant chocolate, cocoa, chocolate chips, and chocolate syrup.

In 1965, a PEANUT BUTTER CUPS candies line was added and this quickly became one of the company's best selling bars.

By the following year, 1966, the Smiths Falls Plant employed 105 people, and, with the introduction of HERSHEY-ETS candy coated milk chocolates, chocolate covered peanuts and chocolate covered raisins it had 22 different products.

By the mid 70's, the cost of a chocolate bar had risen to 25¢ and sales for the Smiths Falls Plant had reached approximately $20,000,000 per year.

1980 saw the introduction of BROWN COW chocolate syrup, Canada's best selling chocolate syrup, followed quickly in 1982 by REESE'S PIECES Candies.

In 1983 after years of research, the recipe for chocolate manufactured in Canada was changed to a creamier, smoother, lighter coloured and milder flavoured product more suitable to Canadian taste.

On June 29, 1987, Hershey Canada purchased the assets and trade-mark rights of Nabisco Brands Ltd.'s Canadian confectionery and snack nut businesses. These businesses included candy sold under the brands OH HENRY!, EAT-MORE, GLOSETTE and LOWNEY, hard roll candy sold under the brand names LIFE SAVERS and BREATH SAVERS, peanuts and other nuts sold under the brand name PLANTER'S, baking chips sold under the brand name CHIPITS, boxed chocolates sold under the MOIRS brand name, and gum and chewy candy sold under the CARE*FREE and BUBBLE YUM brands. (The gum and chewy candy business was sold in November 1988.) The acquisition tripled Hershey's Canadian sales, making it a leading confectioner in that country.

In early 1996, the company sold the assets and trade-mark rights of the snack nut (PLANTERS) and hard roll candy (LIFE SAVERS/BREATH SAVERS) businesses.

On December 31, 1996, as part of the North American acquisition of the Leaf business, Hershey Canada purchased the shares of Leaf Canada Inc. acquiring the rights to the RAINBLO and JOLLY RANCHER ball gum business, WHOPPERS malted candy, JOLLY RANCHER candy and MR. FREEZE and JOLLY RANCHER water-based freezer snack business, and included a production facility in Scarborough, Ontario. The acquisition also included a significant non-branded, bulk ball gum business distributing to vending machine operators in Canada and the United States. The two corporations were merged into one, effective at the end of May 1997.

Subsequently, it was determined that the bulk vend ball gum business and the Scarborough plant did not fit strategically into the business of Hershey's North American. The manufacturing assets were sold on February 28, 1998. Production of the freezer snack businesses was moved to Hershey Canada's Smiths Falls plant. Hershey Canada sold the gum business completely in September 2003 and sold the freezer snack business in October 2005.
