Closing Time


Abstract:
This excerpt from 'Closing' details the closing of White Furniture Co., a century old furniture manufacturer in Mebane, North Carolina. The company had been sold to a conglomerate in 1993 and was then shut down, causing 203 people to lose their jobs. In the 1990s, this was a common situation, when Americans lost their jobs to layoffs, outsourcing, downsizing, buyouts, and off-shoring.
