DENISON, Tex. -- Thursday will be the last day for some production employees at Kwikset before they close for a two week "time out."

All production-related employees will be off December 14 through January 2, but those whose weekly shift ends on Thursday get to start their holiday early.

Starting Monday, only project-related employees will remain, which means a skeleton crew will still be at work.

The human resources department at Kwikset says the reason for the time-out is due to high inventory in house because of low demand due to the housing market.

    I WISH it was a vacation. How about 2 weeks without pay for most of the employees. It doesn't appear they will get anything but 24 hours of Holiday pay for this "time out". Thanks Kwik Set.
