    please check out the following sentences.

    (1) They have not made a decision, so the situation is not clear yet.

    (2) One after another factories are closing, causing more and more people to be out of work.

    Re: made a decision

    I wouldn't think the second line is good English.

    I would write: One after another, factories have closed down, causing more and more people out of work.

    All #2 needs is a comma after another.
