I work for the Friedkin Group and I can tell you that layoff rumors are not correct and we are doing fine. Actually I work for GST and you can look up our page here, no layoffs - GST is owned by the Friedkin Group. I know some other companies here in Texas are having layoffs but not here. Things were bad in 2015 or so, but things improved with time.
Our problems were mostly related to energy prices going down, so it trickles down - when oil people do not have money we cannot sell cars to them and that's a problem. However, now it's all good.
