Layoffs are supposed to be small - only those who were hired back as temporary.

Yes, recently 20-30 people were Called back as part time employees. In September, those individuals plus a complete total of 50 people will be laid off briefly.

My husband works there. The lay offs are mainly the 30 some who got hired back as temps, plus some other people. I hope it settles back down after this month. We can't handle the lack of income! But it was expected. It's a factory. What can you do? Shit happens.

Layoff's in september. Mills pride contracts expire. Including mine. The number will be roughly 250. Don't believe me. Then wait and see. I highly suggest being prepared.

that sucks being layed off, but dont you all make good money? so unemployment is roughly half of that, it would suck if you had a family and bills, i dont, but id rather be layed off in deer season, not summer

If u take a look at the breakdown by weeks. It hasn't gotten any better. Only worse. I would be surprised if its only 250. I've heard rumors of twice that

I heard they're hiring 200 more people. They made a contract with Fedex, Kmart, Sears, JC Penny's, and other store failures.

My dad works out there and has for years. A lot of workers don't know anything because it's one big rumor mill. He told me today they were planning on laying off 700 or some. You can't believe everything you hear. However, I do know they have a loss of orders. Ups is about it right now. They're planning on getting more orders though around Nov. Sorry for the ones at the bottom of the totem pole. I'm fortunate for Dupont.

It driven by the owner an ppl changing orders. If you want to know the truth about it.
They came out with the new truck an people changed their minds an want the new truck instead of the ones they had ordered so now those sit, an they don't have enough parts for the new ones.
They keep loosing money because of this.
If Mr owner would run the business the way his dad did, Kenworth would be running just fine...
