Outsourcing Labor

Child Craft Industries, out of New Salisbury, IN (way down by Louisville), makes cribs and other types of baby furniture. They've been an Indiana business since 1911, founded in Salem, IN. Now, citing competition, they have decided to lay off all their workers and make their furniture in Honduras. Here's their "About Us" information from their company website:
Founded in 1911 in Salem, Indiana, Child Craft Industries remains a family owned, American company. The principles of quality and integrity that have served to guide us for nearly 100 years are alive and well.

I guess that I-69 extension down to Mexico will help them in their move.
