I was just informed that Mercury Marine will have a plant wide shut down for two weeks after today for all - including mgmt without pay....also the last two weeks of Dec.

I believe the source to be credible.

Sounds close to what I've heard as well. Tough times for everyone and until the confidence in the market/economy comes back its gonna stay that way.

Wow I guess that's better than losing your job totally but maybe not by much. A month and a half without income is tough to take anytime but right now it may well be more than some can take period.

As will a lot of companies, but many won't make it.
The tough times will pass but not until most Americans have seen the worst economy of their lives.
