Freeport's Titan Tire lays off over 60 employees


Sixty-six workers are out of a job in Freeport, but their employer hopes to have them back soon.

According to Steve Strauss, Operations Manager at Titan Tire, the hourly workers were laid off Monday but the company hopes the situation will be temporary. The company is blaming a downturn in the market for the layoffs and all the workers are on a recall list.

The facility still employs around 536 people, including salaried workers.
