DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP)-- A Wisconsin-based printing company is cutting more jobs at its plant in Dubuque.

The Telegraph Herald ( http://bit.ly/MV6uwE ) says Quad/Graphics of Sussex, Wis., will trim the workforce by 50 to 60 jobs by the end of year. The company cut 24 jobs at the Dubuque plant in May, saying it was looking for ways to maximize its efficiency.

Company spokeswoman Claire Ho says after final cuts are made, the plant will have about 200 employees. She says the company began notifying some employees on Wednesday and plans to give affected workers at least 30 days notice that their jobs are being eliminated.

Ho says the company will offer displaced workers positions at other plants around the country and severance packages.

I got laid off in Jonesboro July 22nd.I was worried about gettig another job.2 day's after I left the sorriest compay on the face of the earth, I got a job making $3.00 an hour more and work in a climate controlled room.I get a raise every 3 month's til I reach $22.00 per hour plus cost of living raise.That just prove's that there is life after Quad. Sorry to hear about layoff's, but there is a better chance at a better life.Good luck and God bless. P.S Joel is lower than a snake under a rock!!!

I could not agree with you more. Just want to wish everyone good luck. I believe he is the Devil, just dressed in blue. He will get what's coming to him. I did really like my job before Quad. Good luck!!!
