Motor Coach Industries laid off 10 hourly employees Friday at its plant in Pembina, N.D.

Patricia Plodzeen, public relations specialist, said the layoffs were part of normal line rate adjustments that the company goes through. "It's dependent upon market conditions and customer demands," she said.

Those line rate adjustments also led to 30 hourly Pembina employees being laid off in October. Plodzeen said the 40 total layoffs in the past six weeks were first announced earlier this year.

"This is no additional from what was announced back in September," she said.

There are 212 people still employed at the Pembina plant.
