Hotels, Vendors Layoff Workers In Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay

The company which employs concession workers and vendors for Lambeau Field and Miller Park notified the state this week of 1,303 layoffs.  

The move by Delaware North comes as the Green Bay Packers announced reduced stadium capacity and the Milwaukee Brewers prepare for a shortened season amid the coronavirus pandemic which has sickened some players.

Delaware North is extending layoffs originally announced in March.

"The pandemic has proved longer in duration and more devastating than anyone could have predicted," the company wrote in a letter to the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development. "This was an unforeseen business circumstance that renders us unable to forecast the precise timeline for business to resume to a level sufficient to return all of our associates to work. Thus, it is reasonably foreseeable that many associates will not return to work within six months."
