Workers Laid Off

Second Chance Body Armor of Geneva temporarily laid-off half of its work force.

The company makes bullet-proof protective vests for the military and police departments.

The Michigan based company has 250 employees at its Geneva plant.

About 125 of those employees received lay-off notices Monday because of a re-organization of the company.

Second Chance recently filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy, but officials say the lay-offs are only temporary and employees should be back to work in two to three weeks.
