Chicago's Afternoon News

MIDDLEBURY, IN – FEBRUARY 10: Recreational vehicles sit on the grounds of Jayco, Inc., the country’s third largest maker of RVs, February 10, 2009 in Middlebury, Indiana. Middlebury is located in Elkhart County which had the highest jobless rate increase in the United States over the past 12 months, up from 4.7 percent to 15.3 percent. The increase can mostly be attributed to layoffs in the RV industry which dominates local manufacturing. Jayco has had to lay off a third of its workers and has asked for concessions from others.
