Only Hawaiian canned pineapple plant to cut half of workers

As reported by Foodnews:

MAUI Land & Pineapple Company, the USA's sole remaining pineapple cannery, will cut its canning staff by half next year as it continues to shift towards more profitable fresh pineapple preparation. The company is sending out notices to its 334 cannery workers saying that nearly 149 positions will be cut early next year.
