A Wisconsin firm calls back laid off workers. Sub-Zero, a manufacturer of high end refrigerators, is calling back second shift workers. Company spokesman Chuck Very attributes that to demand from the remodeling industry – not new construction.
While the news is good for Sub-Zero and its employees, Very is cautious about reading too much into it.
Some 165 union workers on Sub-Zero’s second shift in Madison and Fitchburg have been laid off since spring. In addition to the callbacks, Very says the firm plans on adding 65 salaried positions next year.
