200 people.  They closed a nearby testing facility late last year.  Employees were given the option of going to their new facility near Huntsville, AL.  Expect the same here.

I read severance pay or job search help are their options.

I had the option of several Remington Screwup threads to post this under, but couldn't decide.  The choices are many.  I finally quit looking.

I have to say sucks for the workers. But, the way Big Green treats it's dealers and their customers, I am surprised they did not go belly up 30 years ago. Just my observations working 3 years in a gun shop / range.
