CNN Video on Hav-A-Tampa Closure

While logged into Facebook just the other day, I saw Jeff Borysiewicz of Corona Cigar Company make mention of a CNN Video involving a cigar company. Being at work when I saw the mention, I made a note for myself to watch it when I got back home for the day.

The two minute video spot informs us of the closure of the Hav-A-Tampa cigar factory down in Tampa Florida. One former employee, Ron Russel, took it upon himself to help the nearly 495 former employees find work.

  1. Cigar Dave also mentioned that Cathy Castor, U.S. Rep. in the “Hav-a-Tampa” district, vigorously supported SChip, which led to the layoff of 500 of her own constituents, but that fact was conveniently left on the CNN Cutting Room floor.

  2. Kudos to Ron Russel.. in typical brother of the leaf fashion, he is putting the other 495 former employees ahead of himself. Good for him.
