Kenosha envelope company to close, cutting 103 jobs

According to a report from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Cenveo Inc. will close its envelope plant in Kenosha by October 19, resulting in the permanent loss of 103 jobs.

“The closure of this facility will be permanent, and the entire manufacturing plant will be closed,” the company said in a filing with the state Department of Workforce Development.

Can someone tell me when Gov. Scott Walker’s “tools” are going to start creating jobs here in Wisconsin?

  1. Cenveo’s sales have been declining for years and was capped by a 7% loss in the 2nd quarter of this year. The company (Based out of Connecticut) can no longer support the this factory. Cenveo themselves cite “lower direct mail volumes that hurt its print and envelope product lines.”

    My guess is as the USPS fails, you will see more of these companies that have ridden the coattails of the USPS fail.

    What I don’t understand is why you think that’s Scott Walkers fault.

    1. Why haven’t Scott Walker’s “tools” saved those 103 jobs?

      Better yet, why haven’t Walker’s “tools” created 103 new jobs at the company? After all, Walker said he’d not just retain our existing jobs, but that he’d create 250,000 new jobs.

  2. Steve already pointed out the obvious: hello, it’s an envelope factory! If anyone is to blame it’s Al Gore for inventing the Internet. What politician did you blame for the typewriter or buggy factory closing.

    I also notice you didn’t post the job gains that happened the very same week where UnitedHealthcare in Green Bay is adding 169 more customer care jobs. If you are going to post each and every job loss, how can you not post the gains as well?

      1. A liberal slant I expect, but I didn’t realize you were ok with being outright untruthful.

        You asked “Can someone tell me when Gov. Scott Walker’s “tools” are going to start creating jobs here in Wisconsin?”. So I gave you an answer on job gains.

        There’s a difference between a bias and lying.
