Kearney Plant Lays Off More Workers

Another business is laying off employees due to the economy.

Officials at the Kearney manufacturing plant “Eaton Corporation” say the company is temporarily laying off 17 employees, starting tomorrow.

There's no word on how long these workers will be off the job and it might be permanent.

This is the latest round of cuts at the Eaton plant where workers make valves and gears for automakers.

In February, Eaton laid off 30 local workers.

The company employs about 80,000 people worldwide and has been laying workers off at other plants as well.
