(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Bombardier is set to lay off 550 workers at its Thunder Bay plant, according to CTV News.
The plant had a very public struggle keeping up with the order of street cars for Toronto.
The layoffs come as not much of a surprise to some workers.
Bombardier is one of the most significant employers in Thunder Bay and the loss of 550 good jobs will be felt in the community.
As the city struggles with substance abuse and an apparent lack of well-paying jobs, this is just another blow.
Below is the video with more details about the layoffs.
