In what the company hopes is only a temporary move, Ingersoll Rand has laid off 21 employees. The announcement came Friday and was effective on Monday."Hopefully, it is going to be short lived," said Joe Fair, human resources manager. "It could change. We just don't know."
The 21 employees amount to 10 percent of the air compressor manufacturer's local workforce and brings the number of current employees to 175.
Fair said the slowing economy led to the layoffs.
