Job Market Blues: Georgia's Struggle Intensifies Amid Mail Processing Business Departure

Matheson Flight Extenders (MFE), a mail processing, transportation, and logistics contractor, will be laying off 46 employees as it closes a mail sorting facility in Georgia.

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.

MFE has lodged a WARN notice with the Georgia Department of Labor notice advising that 46 employees at a facility at 775/795 Atlanta S Pkwy in College Park will be laid off.

MFE has been providing services to the Postal Service since December 1998 but has recently cut jobs in several states following a dispute with the US Postal Service.

Georgia Job Cuts

Across 2023, fifty-four businesses have filed a WARN act with the Georgia Department of Labor advising of layoffs resulting in over 12,600 people losing their jobs.

This year's total has already surpassed that of 2022, when fifty businesses lodged WARN notices, leading to 3,823 lost jobs.
