Manhattan Plant Losing 82 Jobs

By  | 

A manufacturing facility announced Wednesday that it will be cutting jobs in the Manhattan community.

Pepsi-Co is eliminating 82 positions from its Manhattan Wuaker Oats plants, effective January 30.

Te plant will continue to employ 26 people for other production lines.
The move is part of restructuring. Manhattan Chamber of Commerce President Lyle Butler told 13 News that the company will hold a job fair at the plant early next month.

He says he's hopeful those cuts will be able to find new jobs in the community.
