US (PA): Cannabis plant in Saxton lays off half its employees

The Green Leaf Medical Marijuana Plant in Saxton officially laid off more than half of their employees within the past week.

The company sent a letter to the state’s Department of Labor and Industry and Saxton Mayor Alan Smith, noting 73 employees would be permanently laid off by February 28th. All employees affected were notified of their layoff in a separate letter.

Smith said this is a shock to the borough because of the promising $50 million plant expansion that would’ve brought hundreds of jobs. Smith said many people who work within the plant enjoyed their jobs and what they learned.

Columbia Care, who owns Green Leaf, confirmed in a statement that this mass layoff is from a supply and demand issue.
