A Facility in Oklahoma Now Announces Unexpected Layoffs

A facility in Oklahoma now announces unexpected layoffs as the business warns of more than 100 job cuts.

More than 100 employees at a manufacturing facility in Muskogee, Oklahoma, suddenly found themselves out of work after the plant closed without warning.

Workers at the Proform Group plant were notified around 6 pm on Wednesday that the facility was shutting down immediately after they had worked a full regular day.

“It’s a shocker and very sad,” said Muskogee Mayor Marlon Coleman.

“Proform Group didn’t provide the city any advance notice of the mass layoffs.

We know that those are good, trained employees, so we’ve got a lot of movement that we think is going to positively impact those employees even though nothing can take away the shock from realizing in a short period of time that they don’t have a job anymore.”

Lemanuel London was one of the employees who lost his job.

‘It was a shock,” said Lemanuel London.

“It was like wasn’t nobody thinking this was going to happen and it happened.”

London worked at Proform Group for 7 years. He started as a temporary employee, then was promoted to full-time.

“I learned everything I could,” said London.

“It’s very disappointing that I had to go because I established a foundation in there and I’ve been there for so long and I learned everything.”

London says employees got a message on the company’s internal employee system on Wednesday around 6pm.

He says everyone worked a full normal day, then they were told the facility was shutting down and everyone was out of work, reports 2 News Oklahoma.

“It came out of nowhere,” said London.

“It was just devastating and shocking especially for people who’d been there a long time too.”

A famous restaurant is now hit with an eviction notice after being sued for thousands in overdue rent, sources confirm.

CHICKEN Guy!, a restaurant branded by Guy Fieri, is subsequently facing multiple eviction threats, reports The-Sun.

The restaurant, located in Winter Park, Florida – just seven miles outside of Orlando – owes $38,507.72 in past-due rent, interest, and late fees, per a lawsuit obtained by local Fox affiliate WOFL.

The landlord issued a three-day notice on February 15 to pay rent or vacate the premises.

The same notice was issued again on March 4.

A complaint and eviction notice was then filed by the landlord in Orange County court on Tuesday, March 12.

The landlord is suing for over $50,000 in damages, including overdue rent, future unpaid rent, accelerated rent, late charges, taxes and fines against the landlord, and attorney fees, per local CBS affiliate WKMG.

The restaurant is being sued alongside Earl of Sandwich and Planet Hollywood, the three of which fall under the ownership of Robert Earl.

All three restaurants were part of the same lease agreement as Chicken Guy!, which is why they’re named in the legal complaint.

“Chicken Guy! features one-of-a-kind, all-natural fresh, chicken tenders, hand-pounded to maximize crunch and paired with a wide selection of delicious sauces,” reads the restaurant website.

“Brined in fresh lemon juice, pickle brine, and buttermilk, and infused with fresh herbs, these tenders deliver on flavor and texture.”

Meanwhile, popular restauranteur and Food Network host Fieri was set to host the Flavortown Fest on June 1 and 2 in his hometown of Columbus, Ohio.

However, the event was abruptly canceled.

“Due to unforeseen circumstances, Guy Fieri’s Flavortown Fest, initially planned for June 1-2 in Columbus, OH, has been canceled” read a statement issued to local NBC affiliate WCMH-TV.
