What is the likelihood of Dow Chemical layoffs in Midland in 2016? Please let me know if you have any information.
2400 let go in 2013 - more to come in 2014 - Due to falling sales and declining profits, Dow Chemical Co. announced late last year that it would be closing 20 plants globally, which would mean that 2,400 of its employees would get a pink slip.
