Marathon Lays Off Wyoming Workers
CODY, Wyo. (AP) — Layoffs at Houston-based Marathon Oil are playing out in Cody and elsewhere in Wyoming this week.
A company-wide 10 percent staff reduction will affect Wyoming employees.
About 200 people working in Oregon Basin and other oil fields are attached to Marathon's Cody office. About 50 work in the office.
Marathon spokesman Lee Warren says the layoffs stem from the plunge in oil prices.
