Ok Beth. I know someone who works there. Most of the employees are latino-some don't speak english and alot of the american employees make min wage. Are you sure you aren't really Jenny in disguise?

Who do you know that works there Maureenlee?? I would like to know. In my profession we work with Herbrucks daily (much of our corn is shipped into their plant January through August) and I have not once come into contact with someone who did not speak english. And several employees I speak with have been there for many, many years and will tell you it's one of the best places to work.

Funny, you know "someone" who works there. It amazes me how people can take a positive (ie: more jobs) and turn it into a bash about the company.

This is directed to maureenlee. So what if most of the employees there are latino? At least they are working even if it might be at minumum wage and not living off the tax payers like a lot of people in Ionia County.
