Skip's decided to move so they could pay the workers 70 cents a hour in Honduras and yes I know it for a fact as I am married to a Honduras man and the ironic part my mother worked at Skips in Ephreta. She lost her job after 16 yrs of employement. Lost her income, insurance, and her helth went down hill from there. Allbecause of a few super benefits that were made up between the Honduras and American goverments to aide in companies moving to Honduras. I have a sister in law who started working there in Honduras and wow what a pay difference. My mother made close to 13 dollars a hour and my sister in law makes only 70 cents.55 New St.

"Skip's Cutting is cutting more than just garments these days. The company manufactures, dyes, and finishes men's and women's apparel. In 2005 Skip's Cutting announced it would be laying off about 80% of its entire workforce in the fall of 2005, due in part to increased competition from apparel imports."
