    And it finally catches us
    The cut backs have now hit the indian village today also.
    Today our plant announced more cut backs.
    We're going from a 6 & 7 day a week product on 3 shifts to 4 days with aproximately half the crew. Not a good thing for a small town.

    Not seeing the impact here yet, but I'm expecting huge hits in Q1 as the rippled gradually flows back and hits the manufacturers and raw material suppliers in this region. There still seems to be a sense of "it won't happen to us" here. Though I met with some china based firms last week and they were all looking very concerned.

    It's going to be very very unpleasant.

    Chris,
    I might be wrong my geography wasn't a good subject for me in high school, many years ago now. But isn't that China?
    If it was that is one of the major orders we had put on hold today.
