babcock and wilcoxLast week’s layoffs at Babcock & Wilcox Company may not be the end of jobs lost for the area. B&W originally announced the possible layoffs in April after more than a year of struggling to find investors for the mPower project. Sources say there was a potential loss of more than 200 employees; but according to the company, there were 100 jobs lost on June 16; nearly three-quarters of those were employed at the Lynchburg and Forest facilities. A reduction in workforce at the facility is not over completely… which could mean more jobs lost in the future.
