Wonderful Citrus Packing LLC said the winter storm in February is partly to blame for the layoffs that will affect 141 employees at the facility. The layoffs occurred March 15. "Due to the unexpectedly severe winter storms in Texas and related business circumstances that were not reasonably foreseeable, Wonderful Citrus Packing is implementing a reduction in workforce," according to Sean M. Sullivan, an employment counsel for Wonderful Citrus Packing. "This action is expected to be temporary. Seasonal employees affected by this action may be eligible for seasonal rehire in or around September 2021." Wonderful Citrus Packing, located in the Rio Grande Valley, is a grower, shipper and packer of fresh citrus.
