HUDSON COUNTY -- The North Hudson Community Action Corporation, with offices in West New York, North Bergen, Hoboken, Union City, and Jersey City, laid off roughly 50 employees this past week, sources from within the agency say.
According to a recently laid-off staffer from the West New York office, roughly 10 employees were informed in person Thursday that they would no longer be needed.
The non-profit agency, which -- in addition to providing health care for local needy people -- helps Hudson County residents find employment, informed laid-off employees that they would be placed on the top of their job-seeking list.
The West New York branch had recently expressed their desire to expand, including purchasing the building they currently rent at 5301 Broadway, as well as expanding to another location in Englewood.
Executives from the administrative offices could not be reached for comment. -Stephen LaMarca
