Milwaukee Tools Offers HDW Employees Jobs

GREENWOOD, MS (Ben Caxton) — The 54 Workers who lost their jobs when a Greenwood company announced its closing last week took a detour on the way to the unemployment office thanks to expanding business at Milwaukee Tools. On Friday plant manager at Milwaukee Tool, Jack Bilotta, stepped up and offered to hire the former HDW workers. Bilotta told the Greenwood Commonwealth newspaper that they are growing so fast their current 865 employees are going to have problems keeping up with demand. At a meeting between Bilotta, the executive director of the Greenwood-Leflore-Carroll Economic Development Foundation, Angela Curry, and Mary Ann Stinson, plant manager at HDW, Stinson pointed out that some of HDW’s workers were former Milwaukee Tools employees fired for poor performance, but urged their new potential employers to take a second look. Stinson said HDW had worked with all to develop better work habits.
