The Longaberger Company is cutting 35 full-time positions. Company spokesman Tom Matthews says most of the people affected were those with professional and supervisory positions from all aspects of the business. The cut occurred Tuesday and Wednesday of last week. But the employees were paid through Friday. Matthews says Longaberger is suffering from a still weakened economy just like every other business and it’s trying to run in an efficient and cost effective manner.
