There’s another round of layoffs at the largest employer in north-central Iowa’s Hamilton County. Officials of Webster City-based Electrolux Home Products announced Monday that 85 people at the washer and dryer manufacturer will be let go on March 2nd.

The recent economic situation is to blame for this latest round of layoffs. Last week, 43 people who worked at Electrolux Home Products learned that they were out of a job. The possibility still exists for the workers to return if and when the economic situation improves. The Electrolux firm at one time employed upwards to 2,100 people in making the line of washers and dryers.
