State Farm Layoffs Smaller Than Expected

Only a handful will be affected in April

BLOOMINGTON - The twin cities' largest employer is announcing layoffs.

In a state-mandated letter to the City of Bloomington on February 22nd, State Farm warned of a future layoff.

Originally, 54 employees from Corporate South stood to lose their jobs in April.

As of today, that number is down to 35.

State Farm says it's working with the affected employees to find other positions within the company.

Despite the layoff announcement, State Farm remains committed to Bloomington.

The company issued a statement in January when Caterpillar announced the relocation of its headquarters.

It says in part… “we have no plans to change the location of our corporate headquarters.”

It goes on to say quote  “As the number one employer in Bloomington, State Farm has a vested interest in the current and future economy.”
