Hastings' Smead Manufacturing to lay off 50 workers
As of March 18, roughly 50 employees at Smead Manufacturing's
Hastings location will be out of work. The layoffs are a direct
result of high unemployment, which has adversely affected Smead's sales.
"It's no secret that unemployment remains exceedingly high," said
Smead's vice president of marketing, Jim Riesterer.
Smead makes products to help people stay organized - items that often
find primary use in businesses.
