ConAgra Closing Chautauqua County Plants


FREDONIA, NY - Hundreds of people at two plants in the Southern Tier were told Wednesday that they would soon be out of a job. The factories are both owned by the food company: ConAgra.

425 jobs will be cut at Carriage House plants in Fredonia and Dunkirk. This includes management and union employees -- many of whom have worked here most of their lives. The layoffs will happen in phases, beginning in September and ending in February 2015. Eventually ConAgra wants to sell their facilities.

"I will be looking into moving out of here, I lived here my whole life, so this affects me because I've known everybody, it's going to be a life changer," said Andrew Diaz, a fork lift driver with the company, who's worked in Fredonia for three years.

Carriage House makes products that are sold in grocery stores -- from jellies and jam to peanut butter and bottled juices. But, demand has been decreasing.

Cantor Calls For Economic Reform, School Choice in Lecture

Cantor Calls For Economic Reform, School Choice in Lecture

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, a leading proponent of school choice, addressed education, health care and other pressing national issues in the House Republican Party’s four-point policy agenda as featured speaker at the Daemen College Distinguished Leaders Lecture Series held March 10.

Introduced by Congressman Chris Collins, Cantor emphasized an “American That Works” plan in response to major challenges being faced today largely by the middle class.

“Many have lost faith in our nation and in the American dream. The American people deserve better and that’s why the House Republican leadership’s number one issue is to restore an America that works,” said Cantor, a six-term Virginia congressman.

Cantor pointed to the “middle-class squeeze” brought on by minimal wage growth and rising costs in making it harder for middle-class families to make ends meet. “Three out of four Americans are living paycheck to paycheck,” he said.
