Firestone Lays Off Workers


Flagging auto sales have decimated nearly every industry surrounding the auto sector so it really comes as no surprise that Firestone(a local maker of tires)would now be alying off some staff.
On Friday 32 workers at Firestone textiles were handed their pink slips after the tire maker reported sales had fallen flat.
The Canadian and US auto markets have been stagnant for sometime now and new tires just are not needed as there is no auto production going on. People are not repairing their vehicles either so aftermarket sales have collapsed as well.
There is no word on how long these layoffs may last for.
