Starkist Samoa cannery in American Samoa reduces work hours

12:11 pm on 27 October 2010

Employees of the StarKist Samoa cannery in American Samoa are working only three days this week.

Questions sent to a cannery spokesperson about the short week went unanswered.

Employees who spoke with KHJ News say they were told last week that a shortage of fish has made it necessary to cutback production.

One supervisor said it's likely that the cannery will be working 3-4 days a week up to the end of the year.
