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 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
This year's total has already surpassed that of 2022, when fifty businesses lodged WARN notices, leading to 3,823 lost jobs.
Are you concerned about these job losses? Do you fear the United States could be heading toward a recession? Who is to blame for job losses? Is there anything Gov. Kemp can do to address these job cuts?
