Local (WI) Community Reacts to Sale of Paper Mill
A Wisconsin community is reacting after a billion dollar sale of three paper mills. On Monday, Verso Paper announced that it has purchased NewPage. That includes its mills in Wisconsin Rapids, Stevens Point, and Biron.
The Tennessee based paper company bought NewPage for close to $1.5 billion. Right now NewPage employs more than 1,700 workers in Wisconsin.
So what does this sale mean to those employees?
