ROWAN COUNTY, NC (WBTV)- Hundreds of people could soon be out of a job as Daimler Trucks North America warns of possible job cuts nationwide.
According to company officials, DTNA "is in the process of notifying production workers across DTNA's North American manufacturing facilities of a potential layoff in compliance with the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act."
Daimler has not confirmed how many people could lose their jobs in the Charlotte area.
But employees told WBTV as many as 80 people could lose their jobs in Gastonia, possibly 400 in Mount Holly and up to 715 in Cleveland.
"It hurts. It's a hardship on everybody. You don't ever want to lose a job," said one employee.
A spokesman for the company would not give an exact number. The company is expected to release more information on Thursday.
At Mount Holly's Freightliner Plant, it is the waiting that seems to be the toughest.
