United Furniture fires thousands by text days before Thanksgiving
Biden gives comments on infrastructure and jobs
“I don’t know where it is written or said we can’t be the manufacturing capital of the world again,” President Biden gives his thoughts on infrastructure and jobs.
Mississippi-based United Furniture Industries laid off nearly its entire workforce before Thanksgiving.
Around 2,700 workers lost their jobs on Monday, according to a report from the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal.
The company, which had become one of the largest furniture businesses in the country, sent a memo via email and text message to workers late Monday night and instructed them not to report to work the next morning.
In a follow-up email, United Furniture Industries said the layoff is "expected to be permanent and all benefits will be terminated immediately without provision of COBRA."
