Shaw to lay off more employees

Posted: Updated:

RINGGOLD, CATOOSA COUNTY (WRCB) – It's another blow for the North Georgia economy.

Dalton-based Shaw it's trimming its workforce at two more plants.

It's the latest in a series of layoffs over the past few years.

Officials haven't said how many people at the Eton and Ringgold plants will be affected.

They say the move is part of their ongoing efforts to align and consolidate its operations in response to market demand.

Over the past five years, Shaw has laid off nearly 7,000 employees.

Officials hope to be able to offer positions at other facilities to the affected workers.
