TYLER - Workforce solutions have offices in fourteen counties throughout texas and each one will feel the effects of unemployment themselves in the next few weeks.
Workforce solutions of east texas plans to lay off 50 employees by the end of the month.
That is the initial number, but up to 125 employees in all programs and departments could soon find themselves standing in the very same line with people who they initially helped.
The program's director says the layoffs come from a series of budget cuts in the past three years.
But he says even employment agencies are feeling the strain of the economy on jobs.
Fowler says employees who are laid off can still use the same services that the company offers to the general public.
