When the computer industry was having problems Compaq did the same thing. It worked so well they keep it.

With their stock value down 87% and now at under $3 per share, Brunswick"s problems could get even worse over the next 3 or 4 months, lets hope they can ride it out and survive this financial meltdown along with GM and Ford. Our industry would be devastated without them and I am not sure much of the industry would be left in their absence!
Think good thoughts and say your prayers for these guys!

Best Regards,

The good news is that the employees should qualify for unemployment compensation during those weeks.
