Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company Cuts About 10% of its Local Work Force
Nov 18 11
Wm. Wrigley Jr. Co. is cutting 100 jobs, or about 10% of its local work force, because it is restructuring its North American business to focus on increasing sales of its chewing-gum and confections products. Many of the job cuts will affect legal, marketing, human resources and other employees who work at Wrigley's offices at 600 W. Chicago. The company employs about 1,000 of its 2,800 North American business workers in the local area. Unaffected by the cuts are the company's operations at the Wrigley Building and on Goose Island. The spokeswoman said the cutbacks were driven by the company and not its corporate parent Mars, which bought the company three years ago for $23 billion.
