National Spinning Company announced in a Nov. 21 letter to its salaried employees that they will take a week off work in 2008 without pay and will see a 5 percent wage reduction in 2009.
In Washington, about 185 people are employed by the company.
In a brief telephone interview Monday afternoon, Chesnutt blamed much of the economic downturn in the national economy on the prior two presidential administrations.
