A printer in Woodstock is closing and putting about 130 people out of work.
McHenry County Workforce Network Director Julie Courtney tells The Northwest Herald that D.B. Hess will stop operations later this week. Courtney says the Woodstock commercial and education material printer informed the city and county about the layoffs.
Authorities say members of the county workforce network and state employment officials met with affected workers on Tuesday. Courtney says her office will help workers find similar positions in other companies. She says they also could help employees upgrade their skills.
