Mercury Marine Needs To Stay In Fond Du Lac

Home Inspector with Square One Home Inspection

Most of you in the Fond du lac region of Wisconsin have probably heard a thing or two about Mercury Marine possibly shutting down their operations in Fond du Lac. Now don't go all union or non-union on me here. There is more at stake here than most people realize.

It doesn't matter what side of the aisle you are on here. Whether you work on the shop floor or run a department you will be affected by this outcome, as well as many local businesses and families. Turn on your radio or watch the news, and you will hear how this could affect the whole area.

I strongly urge both sides, union and management, to try to resolve this issue and keep Merc in Fond du Lac. Are there other businesses in Fond du Lac? Yes, but as one of the largest employers in town, the loss of this company could be devastating to the city, county, and other outlying areas.

It would  not just be the jobs at Mercury Marine that could be lost here. Small businesses will be affected by this decision as well, forcing some of them out of business, closing their doors forever.

Come on folks, get back to the table, and really , I mean REALLY try to get this situation resolved. Fond du Lac needs you.

Hope they get to stay.  Large closings like that affect so many other aspects of the local community and the people that live there.

Good luck with it.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I appreciate it.

Hasn't Mercury been there for eons? Wow that would really be bad news for the area.  Hope they stay.

Trey, yes, Mercury has been in Fond du Lac FOREVER. This would have a tremendous effect on the area.

I presume Mercury Marine are the folks who make Mercury outboard engines and the like. Had no idea they were in Wisconsin. I think, perhaps, that they should be in San Diego -- LOL.
