It’s more bad numbers for the North Country job market.

Just days after the Climax plant in Lowville announced it was closing immediately, AirBrake in Watertown is set to lay off 19 hourly workers.

An employee at the plant says the workers were notified yesterday and that the layoffs will be effective by the end of this week.

The reduction in staff is being blamed on a declining demand for product.

AirBrake still has a staff of roughly 480.
