Barney Trucking layoffs

One of the largest employers in the central Utah region was forced to lay off approximately 50 employees earlier this month due to less demand for coal transportation. “We are doing what we can and looking into other fields to get them back to work,” said Dennis Johnson, operations manager for Barney Trucking. He said while the company hopes the layoffs are temporary, it is difficult to predict when or if drivers will return to work. Richfield Reaper
