If I didn't know better I'd say you were someone who worked for MY company.

In January, the Bank came in and took over everything.

we were 10 million in debt. They cut off our financing so we had to operate of cash, forced the owners to lay off any personal not totally necissary, put 2 Auditors in charge of micromanaging every dept and all capital spending had to be pre-aproved by them, forced a close down of a plant in Arizona, etc...
and gave us six months to show improvement.

Needless to say, we employess were extremely P.O.ed.

What did the owners do? Exactly down to the minutest detail of what you just said!!!!

Needless to say, we employees turned the company around in 3 weeks in which we made 6 million. The Auditors were gone in 6 weeks, two other corperations invested in us, the Current Bank refinanced us and we are almost break even!

Uncanny, I'd swear you were upper management at QA Label!
