Sara Lee layoffs
PARIS, Texas — In another big blow to the North Texas economy, Sara Lee announced Friday that more than half of the workers at its Paris, Texas, bakery plant will be laid off later this year.
Sara Lee, one of the biggest employers in Paris, said it is negotiating severance packages with about 260 staffers.
Earlier this week, the parent company of Folgers coffee announced the shutdown of its plant in Sherman. About 100 jobs will be lost in that community.
