Sorry to hear about the person that got let go, but all industries did that in 2009 and 2010, not just the ABBEY. Unfortunately if you live in Walworth county, the hospitality/service industry which is a very large employer was the segment of employment that has grown over the last 10 years and only one of 2 that pays more than the state average...but it is the lowest paying segment. Our officials need to get on it and work together to bring some better paying jobs and industry to our area. Sales tax revenue is not big enough and only a few municipalities benefit from the room tax revenue..
