• Furloughs start Monday for 2,600 Freightliner employees

    Updated:

    MOUNT HOLLY, N.C. - About 2,600 people in Gaston County will have to take a week off work starting Monday without pay.

    Freightliner is forcing workers in Mount Holly to take the time off because demand for the trucks they build dropped by half in just two months.

    Some workers have already taken four furlough days in the past few months.
