Layoffs At John Deere Harvester

Posted: Updated:


Officials announced that 120 John Deere Harvester employees are being laid off.
The layoffs go into effect on March 31st. Some employees we spoke to say they saw it coming.

"We can see the writing on the wall because things have slowed some but everything will be alright," Pete Guyton said.

"Some just bought houses, some are having children, so they're pretty worried about it," Austin Anderson said. "I mean nothing you can do. It's going to happen."

John Deere officials say a downturn in the market for large farm equipment is causing the downsize. Layoffs only affect harvester works employees at the East Moline location.
