200 jobs to go at Patton

A local construction giant announced that it will be giving out 200 redundancies, due to a massive downturn in the economic sector.  Patton, a family-run firm who gets most of its business by contracting workers and subcontracting other companies and workers says the majority of people who will lose their jobs are skilled construction workers and craftspeople.  Patton’s situation will be felt by many who work below them, and the company itself is struggling to find ways to balance their budget.  They currently owe upwards of 1 million pounds to 20 companies owned by Quarry Products Association, with no means to pay it back other than cutting their bottom line.
