AUGUSTA, Maine - Gov. Paul LePage today offered a grim prediction for the roughly 650 employees at the recently purchased Fairchild Semiconductor.
The governor told Bangor radio station WVOM that he believes the company's new owner, ON Semiconductor, would shutter the South Portland facility.
"The likelihood of them leaving I think is - unfortunate - is a high probability," LePage said. "And unfortunately it falls on deaf ears across the street," LePage says.
