both my parents lost their jobs in that same McDonnell Douglas closure too.

the layoffs had long-lasting consequences in the labor market there. my dad was making minimum wage selling TVs at Circuit City for years afterward, because it was so hard to find work with a 2 year degree in EE as that plant had employed so many folks with those skills who all got laid off at once. eventually he had to move across the country just to find work.
