Ex-employees at Milan Arsenal still hunting jobs

JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) -- Many of the 160-some workers who were laid off from the Milan Army Ammunition Plant in December are still looking for employment.

The Jackson Sun reports another 30 people were laid off from the plant known as the Milan Arsenal in the past month. The plant still retains a few workers as production is moved to Iowa.

Although Tim Barber was cut from his position at the arsenal more than two months ago, he remains optimistic about finding another job.

Barber said he was laid off from another job before being employed at the arsenal and knows that eventually he will find something. Until then, he said his family is cutting back on spending.
