WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU) Nationwide Insurance is laying off 40 workers in Wausau -- about a-third of its local work force - because those jobs are being transferred to another facility in Ohio.
The layoffs will start in May, and will be finished by the summer.
The company told workers about the change yesterday. The facilities in Columbus and Cincinnati have new computers to more-easily-handle retirement accounts and record-keeping.
Nationwide will still have about 100 workers in Wausau, and no additional layoffs are planned.
