On This Day: Armstrong announces layoffs

Armstrong World Industries, a major employer in the Lancaster area, announced it would be laying off 56 workers. This announcement made the first page of the Intelligencer On This Day in 2001.


On This Day is a prompt I started this month to further explore historical events. I will make every effort to keep events localized to that of my research or research I am conducting for others. However, from time to time, it will simply be a subject that captured my attention.
Some posts will be brief while others may be more detailed.
