    unfortunately this is a business decision . Todays global market demands that you are efficient and flexible. If amcores employees as a whole didnt meet that criteria than some people were expendable when the rubber hit the road so to speak. I work fulltime and make less than 25k a year to take care of my family of four but yet I can work almost anywhere in my location due to my crosstraining and flexability to work where im needed at that given moment. Certain American industries have rested on their laurels during the boom times and now the taxpayers are having to bear the brunt bc of how intertwined those industry's were and how one demensional employees were within those jobs. If you ask me certain unions have crippled the American workforce by forcing employees to only do "one job" and disciplined for doing someone elses job. Survival of the fittest will always apply to business its just a question of who is applying and whos not.
