As a loyal 34-year employee of a Belleville company known as the ROHO Group, I was saddened when I heard my long-time employers sold the company to a larger operation called Permobile.
As if by Edgar Casey himself, our future has been foretold, stating our jobs are safe. With seven years left before considering retirement I must remain optimistic. Feeling my previous employers will be a tough act to follow.
I can only hope we will prosper and expand, supplying jobs to those in need of a quality place to work.
