Industry News

The owner of the largest paper mill in central Wisconsin has taken a "pause" on plans to sell the mill, leaving nearly 900 laid-off workers in limbo.

Verso Corporation announced in June that it would shut down mills in Wisconsin Rapids and Duluth, Minnesota, laying off about 900 workers in Wisconsin Rapids and another 100 in the Duluth-Superior area. The mills have been idle since the end of July, leaving the vast majority of workers out of a job.
