Heating and air manufacturer Rheem announced today that it will lay off 75-100 hourly workers from their Ft. Smith plant in January, adding to the 60 workers let go last January. The latest round of layoffs will begin on Jan. 11, 2013. Rheem's Ft. Smith plant currently employs about 1,000 people.

As seen in our recent cover story about the shuttering of Whirlpool's massive plant in Ft. Smith last June, it's cold out there for older factory workers seeking new employment.
