Paducah plant set to close, hundred of workers left with no jobs

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE. Ky. (WDRB) -- Businesses that rely on a Kentucky plant are worried about what its closure means for jobs and the economy.

The Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant is expected to shut down at the end of the month.

The closure of the plant will put more than 1000 workers out of high-paying jobs with benefits.

Several local suppliers are concerned about the trickle-down effect for other companies, including job losses.

The Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant is the only government-owned and operated uranium enrichment facility in the country.
