Lamont Phillips, an employee, said the company had been, “holding this over our head for a long time,” and he was relieved he did not “have to deal with that anymore.”

“They always hold that over our heads, that they’ll close it down,” he said. “So, I’m like, ‘OK. Close it down.’”

Phillips said his potential layoff was a “relief” and his “plan is to find another job.”

“We have unemployment, but nobody wants unemployment without the health benefits. So, we’re pretty much going to find another job,” Phillips said.
