Killed the manufacturing business

I have worked as a manager at a large CD manufacturing plant for 14 years. Just got notice yesterday that as of Aug. 28 our facility will be no more. We have seen a HUGE decline in sales since downloading started...every year a little worse until finally this. I have always been very vocal about downloading, etc (for obvious reasons!) but what people fail to understand is that while they are "sticking it to the corporation" by not buying music, they are also sticking to the community. No CD sales means no manufacturing needs which means loss of jobs.
