Jonesboro printer to lay off 600 workers

Posted By on Thu, Mar 8, 2012 at 7:29 AM

Quad/Graphics, a worldwide printing firm, announced yesterday that it would close its Jonesboro plant in the fourth quarter of this year. That will put 600 people out of work. The company said it would attempt to find jobs for workers in other facilities.

A recent article on the company's poor earnings explains that the printer is feeling the shock of reduced demand for ink-on-paper things like glossy magazines, advertising circulars and books. Heard of the Internet, not to mention the iPad, anyone?
