500 more jobs are leaving Nebraska as the Tenneco shock absorber plant in Cozad is closing. Senator Ben Nelson vows not to forget the workers.
“In a town the size of Cozad losing 500 jobs is a very, very significant blow to the local economy, it’s very difficult to replace all those jobs and certainly not all at once.
Nelson says he wants to start working on providing help for the workers now. The plant will shut its doors by the end of 2010.
