The current economic crisis has forced another company here in Eastern Carolina to chop the wages of its salaried employees.
National Spinning Company, which is based in Washington, says it will be slashing salaried employees pay by 5% starting in January.
Those employees will also have to take a week's vacation with no pay between now and the end of the year.
This will affect nearly 250 employees at National locations across the state.
CEO James Chestnutt tells WITN News that they have no plans to reduce their workforce. He says despite the cuts the financial health of National Spinning remains sound.
