Owens Corning job furloughs

Posted: Updated:

NewsChannel 10 has confirmed Owens Corning furloughed 68 employees at their Amarillo facility.

We spoke with a rep from the company and she confirmed the employees will get to keep some benefits while they are furloughed.

While this is bad news for those employees, one area economist says the workforce is strong in Amarillo and they shouldn't have a problem finding more work.

He also went on to say that he does not think this will have a long term impact on Amarillo's unemployment rate.
