Newberg mill closing, leaving 200 workers jobless before holidays

Add this to the already 5,000 jobs lost this year in the Portland-Metro area will make the ripple effects come this
Christmas season not so merry. NEWBERG, Ore. — For more than 100 years the paper mill in Newberg has provided jobs and operated as a staple in the community. But come next month, things are changing.”We’re going from a very good job to having no jobs at all,” said Scott Mead. He has worked at the paper mill, running the boilers, for more than 20 years.
Mead said he received word on Thursday that the paper mill would shut down indefinitely at the middle of November. The move will leave roughly 210 workers without jobs right before the holidays. We can thank Our Oregon Legislature for their Anti-Business Legislation this last session. What will it take for You to VOTE for a change??…14014
