Tough Times Persist for Wisconsin Employees as Another Business Cuts Jobs
The layoffs continue in Wisconsin, with yet another business announcing job cuts this week.
Under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, an employer with more than 100 full-time workers must provide a 60-day notice before laying off 50 or more people at a single site. Superior Die Corp filed a WARN act on Thursday with the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development stating that 133 staff will be laid off.
"Superior Die Set Corp. (“SDSC”) regrets to inform you that it will implement a plant closing of its facility in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, at 900 West Drexel Avenue, as a result of decreasing volume of orders and the liquidation of the business. We expect the layoffs to occur on November 20, 2023, or within 14 days of this date. 133 employees will be affected. The employment losses are expected to be permanent. We have notified the affected workers today by letter of their layoff."
