Decatur Faces Another Round Of Manufacturing Job Losses


It’s another big blow to the city with the highest unemployment rate in Illinois. 

 

Decatur will absorb another 460 layoffs this summer when Caterpillar cuts jobs at its plant there.  The company says the cutbacks are necessary because of a dropoff in demand for mining equipment.

 

Decatur has lost more than a thousand manufacturing jobs in recent months.
