Plant manager hopes this will be ‘the last of it’

One of Lucerne Valley’s major employers is apparently still feeling the effects of a sagging economy.
Mitsubishi Cement Corporation had to make a workforce reduction last week, plant manager Jim Russell said. The plant cut six employees, leaving just under 140 workers at the site.
Mitsubishi temporarily laid off 49 employees earlier this year due to anemic sales, but all of them returned to work about a month later. These latest cuts are permanent, Russell said.
