WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Mundy Maintenance, Services and Operations, LLC plans to layoff 97 workers in Wilmington according to a letter the company sent to Mayor Bill Saffo.

The letter says the layoffs will happen at 4600 Hwy. 421 North. That’s the address for Invista, which has announced dozens of layoffs of its own the last few years amid production cutbacks.

Mundy says its workers will be terminated “on or about December 15.”

The StarNews reported last year that a similar number from Mundy to state officials announced the layoff of 40 contract workers at the Invista plant.

    Welcome to Obama country…

    Stop deviding this country by party affiliation! Everyone is responsible for the people in office. It doesn’t matter which party is in control. There are always going to be issues no matter what. As for layoffs- people are hurting finacially. Republicans feel that everyone has the same capabilities to better themselves. I guess as a REpublican you support al of senator Cruz’s beliefs too!

    All politics is local.

    So I guess you can blame Republican Pat McCrory eh?

    McCrory hasn’t announced anything that replaces these 100 jobs and the 600 at DAK as far as local announcement go.
    So is this a failure of McCrory or Obama?

    They should probably figure the unemployment rate again…..

    So is this increase in rifle manufacturing also part of the welcome wagon to “Obama’s America”? Maybe some companies do well and others don’t. Maybe its the same as it ever was.

    Your comments might be taken seriously if you knew how to spell ksmith. But, the truth is Obama has not done one thing positive economically for this country in 6 years. Mundy probably could not afford Obamacare and so employees have to go.

    This is just some more made-up teabagger lies. Bush and his cronies wrecked our economy and left a big pile of stink for Obama to clean up.
    The last sentence is just some stuff you made up.
    You have taken a page from Michelle Bachman’s playbook.

    My guess is that the workers that are being ‘laid off’ are the same workers that are hired in late August to perform heavy maintenance during a scheduled shutdown that happens every year. They get paid big money for 3-4 months – $25+ per hour plus overtime, 13 days working 12 hour shifts with one day off, plus tax free per diem up to $123.00 per day. Then when they’re laid off, they collect unemployment checks until they’re called up for the next outage in another state in the spring. Much ado about nothing. These workers aren’t hurting.

    I hate to tell you this but no not everybody is responsible for who is in office,just the ones who voted for Obuma and the rest of the crooks,that is the problem the ones who voted and put him in office is ashamed now and what to blame everybody,put the blame were it goes not on everybody.

    Which beliefs? His stance on immigration? His stance on Obamacare? I don’t know much about him, but I know where he stands on these two major issues and he is where he is supposed to be.

  • Drake says:

    “production cutbacks” due to demand faultering of the product. This is simply a case of supply and demand. Natural selection. It’s nobody’s fault. Not president Obama, not the Republicans, not the Democrats, not Pat McCrory.

  • nope says:

    the governments role to create jobs. Most of the jobs they “create” are to keep themselves employed.

    If a Republican pushed the wrong button of a (WMD), that blew out a massive chunk of the Earth…a lot of people in Wilmington would “Still” blame Obama ;-o

    {All because Obama bought his daughter’s a dog…that Pee’s on the BUSH’S!!!!}

  • Vog46 says:

    It is however governments job to provide a tax atmosphere that encourages investment which does create jobs.
    Just giving a tax break to the wealthy does not provide jobs. McCroy made the effort on the corporate tax but the proposal got watered down by those wanting to reduce income taxes on the wealthy.
    If the ONLY thing reduced was the corporate tax they could have gone lower than they did – but just as the DEMs do, they had to reward their benefactors.
    McCrory is still a disappointment in my eyes and his policy failings are being made worse by national economic shortcomings.
