Tifton - Nearly 230 people will soon be out of a job in Tifton, but the Department of labor is ready to help them find new work. Shaw Industries is preparing to close its plant in Tifton. Employees have about 60 days of work remaining. In the meantime, the DOL is working to place those employees in new jobs.

They're holding a job fair on September 14th at the plant, just for the affected employees. Career center manager Eddie Gurly says they can always come by and get help with resumes, interview skills and training information.  He says, "Some people haven't had to look for a job in 15, 20 years and it's going to be, they're going to be depressed, but we can offer them services to help steer them in the right direction."

About 90 other people lost their jobs when Avondale Mills closed in Tifton, but Gurly says most of those people have already gotten other jobs.
