EARLIER: County hit hard by job losses

-A A +A

Signs of life at Ford could help Shelby

By Nathan L. McBroom

2008 has been a bear for local industries.

By the end of the year, more than 10 percent of the industrial jobs that were here in January will have been gobbled up by economic issues that have plagued local employers.

Shelby County began the year with nearly 5,400 industrial jobs, but by the end of December, 568 of those will be no more.

And that's assuming that no more cuts are announced between now and then. Most recently announced were cutbacks at Leggett & Platt in Simpsonville, which will let 85 people go by December.
