Special report scheduled for Penquis Expo April 1

March 22, 2006 - TRC

Mr. Adam Fisher, Director of Public Affairs in the Maine Department of Labor will be releasing a report at the Penquis Expo on April 1 at 11:00 AM that may be of interest to you and your community.

Specifically, the report looks at the experiences of laid-off workers in a central Maine community who were laid-off when a major shoe manufacturer closed. In the interests of avoiding any questions about confidentiality, we are not naming the company by name.

Maine Labor Commissioner Laura Fortman and John Dorrer, labor economist, will be on hand to provide an overview of the report and answer questions.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly at 287-8634.
