Big Dog Takes a Break

From August 17 through the end of the year, Big Dog Motorcycles will stop production at its Wichita, Kan., plant for a total of seven weeks. The stoppage began immediately and will run for four weeks, followed by intermittent closures through December.

The company adds that no layoffs were announced, but all company staff has received a temporary 20 percent pay cut. Workers affected by the production stops will be eligible for unemployment benefits.
