Domtar laying off workers

ROTHSCHILD (WAOW) -- A Domtar Paper spokesperson confirms that 17 people will be laid off from the company's Rothschild mill.

Craig Timm says the layoffs can be blamed on the struggling economy.  He calls the layoffs temporary, but says they could become permanent if the economy doesn't shift.

Timm says every Domtar mill in North America and Canada is facing trying times and leaders are doing all they can to save money.

The workers were hired within the last year.  The layoffs begin on Monday, February 16th.
