39 Lubbock employees lost their jobs

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Lubbock economy has taken a big hit. Last week, VTS or Vertical Turbine Specialists had to lay off 39 employees.

The company still has more than 50 employees. Normally this time of year, the company is overwhelmed with more work than it can handle. This year it's not the case.

The company says the people who lost their jobs made from $12 to $20 an hour.

VTS makes large scale water pumps which might be used by municipalities or big construction companies.
