According to a notice sent to Indiana Department of Workforce Development, the office of Crawfordsville Mayor Todd Barton and Montgomery County Commissioner’s President Jim Fulwider, 108 employees are losing jobs at the Crawfordsville Walmart Optical Lab. The news broke Tuesday. 
Associates were notified on Tuesday and Wednesday of their displacement, and they will remain on payroll until Sept. 28.
“We expect the employment separation to be permanent,” Jill Knowing, general manager, said in the notice to the state.
All displaced employees have an opportunity to apply for open positions at other Walmart locations, and they will be able to accept severance if they cannot obtain another position with Walmart. 
Attempts to reach Crawfordsville Mayor Todd Barton were unsuccessful. Erin Hulliberger, Walmart Corporate Communications director, said Tuesday that she was unsure how many people were impacted by the move. 
Question of the Week:

We have a couple of contested races locally for the November election. What do you want candidates to clearly understand is the most important issue to you?
