Pilgrim's Pride: 335 will be laid off this year

Spokesmen at Pilgrim's Pride say they will be laying off hundreds of salaried workers by the end of the month.

Company officials say the layoffs of 335 employees will be stretched out across the nearly 3 dozen Pilgrim's Pride locations nationwide.

The layoffs should only affect two or three locations in Texas, and only 10 or so employees will be laid off at each location.

Employees that are being laid off will be notified this week, and the company is offering job placement assistance.
