INL

(IDAHO FALLS)  —    More jobs are being cut at the Idaho National Laboratory. Officials say 110 workers have volunteered to leave their positions with Battelle Energy Alliance, but that won’t be enough. An estimated 300 to 450 jobs will be eliminated in the near future. The layoffs are being blamed on the rising costs of day-to-day operations. Authorities maintain that those who volunteer to leave will receive a severance package based on their experience and seniority.
