This past week, Bardstown held their annual Bourbon Festival, but not everyone was celebrating.
Many Heaven Hill Distillery employees like Judy Osborne have been on strike against one of the largest suppliers of distilled spirits in the country since September 11th.
“Heaven Hill is very big and family-oriented. This is family-owned, but it’s their family now, it’s not our families anymore. People think we’re just out here for the wages, and that’s not true. We’re out here mainly for our families. We’ll go back to work tomorrow, if they treat us fairly.”
Currently, over 400 employees are on strike.
