Problems started ten years ago. Good ol boys ride the wave up and didn't check stupid spending. Whr didn't downsize their brand portfolio or product offerings after the Maytag acquisition. Bought into flailing companies. Current CEO has ties to companies whr buys from.
JennAir looses money on paper, plus all of the thousands of hours other departments put into the brand that isn't accounted for. Top dogs could make one or two decisions that would have saved all the cost needed to avoid layoffs. Covid was just an excuse.

For those that did not accept the early retirement package, bad move. The next round of layoff's begin Monday 6/2920. Whirlpool is circling the drain.
