Kiss these jobs goodbye

PORT NECHES — How are they going to employ more jobs when these corporations lay off people and move out of the country? This is all for more profit, which is nothing but pure greed.

The other day, Hershey Chocolate announced they were going to lay off 200 to 300 people who make the little Hershey Kisses and move to Mexico. Well, if they do the government should put an outrageously high tariff on them where it would not be worth it and people should not buy the candy. But the people over here do not care, as long as it does not bother them they can go ahead and do their thing. They had better wake up, because if they keep this up one of these says they will say, “what happened?”
