The article reports on the plan of Stanley Furniture Co. Inc. (SFC) to lay off about 200 of the 450 hourly and management employees at its plant in Robbinsville, North Carolina. This move was primarily due to slowing sales. The industrywide slowdown that had led to lower sales required the company to balance production and staffing levels throughout its facilities. SFC will work with the North Carolina Employment Security Commission to provide career counseling and job search assistance.
