Kronenwetter Transportation Company Announces Layoffs

A Kronenwetter company is laying off more than 300 workers come July

WH Transportation is shutting down their van-trailer division. They haul housing parts for Wausau Homes.

Tom Schuette, co-owner of WH Transportation, tells WFXS the failing economy has a lot to do with why cutbacks were made.

Schuette says the entire US trucking industry, along with WH Transportation, is facing a very challenging time because of the high fuel costs.

WH Transportation in Kronenwetter plans to keep their flat bed division up and running.

Schuette tells WFXS those who will be laid off from the company will still get paid and keep their benefits up until July 31st. After that, they’ll have to find new jobs.  From MyFoxWausau

Another trucking casualty of the insane fuel prices and Washington’s refusal to come up with realistic, common sense solutions.
