Hundreds More Obama Reelection Layoffs
Milwaukee-based Johnson Controls plans to close a central Kentucky plastics manufacturing plant early next year, potentially putting nearly 400 employees out of work.
The Courier-Journal reports that a mass layoff notice filed with the Kentucky Office of Employment & Training on Friday says up to 392 workers could be cut in February when the facility in Louisville closes. The plant produces injection-molded interior components for vehicles.
Company spokeswoman Debra Lacey says the plant employs 440 workers, and an unspecified number would be transferred to other plants within the company.
