A job fair for those displaced workers was held a couple weeks ago, but still many remain without work.

 

Doreen Matison was a cutter at the Prineville plant for two yeras before she was laid off.

 

She said she got her resume out and started knocking on doors immediately and found work at Brightwood Corporation in Madras doing the same work.

 

But not everyone was that lucky.

 

"Doreen  But some people waited for the job fair and when you have 200 unemployed workers walk through the door, there are only so many openings.  Kelly:  So the early bird... Doreen:  gets the worm!

 

Matison now drives 32 miles to work instead of just two, but she's happy to have a job.

 

She estimates of the people she knows who got laid off about a quarter have found work and three quarters are still looking.
