Bridgestone/Firestone to layoff more than 500

The La Vergne tire plant will cut 543 jobs and permanently eliminate 188 jobs of laid off employees in December.

The loss of these high-paying jobs will hurt the Middle Tennessee economy and is reflective of the state's economic dependence on the car industry.

Yesterday, DuPount announced the elimination of 400 jobs of high wages in Old Hickory, a Nashville suburb.
