Top Layoffs week ended 8-6:
Printing topped the list as Quad/Graphics announced closing 5 plants and 2,200 layoffs. Defense was next as BAE Systems cut 1,100 – 1,300 employees.
Even though Government was near the top of the list, total government entities announcing layoffs were way down as only 7 announced job cuts (compared to 17-30 in past weeks). Government layoffs were led by The City of Dallas who released 500 employees. Business service company APAC Customer Services cut approximately 450 from it’s Corpus Christie TX operations.
Transportation remained at the top of the list as Navistar announced 370 layoffs at its Springfield OH facility. Hospitality rounded out the top of the list as Hilton closed a call center in Hemet CA, cutting 325 people.
Inclusion on this listing doesn’t mean the entire industry is down, as some from the same sectors appeared on the “Who’s Hiring” article published 8/2/10.
