About 800 Missourians will lose their jobs when Harley-Davidson Incorporated closes its Kansas City motorcycle assembly plant in the fall of 2019. Tuesday’s announcement was a complete surprise to employees, who came to work and found the doors shut to them, but were told to come back to work Wednesday. Layoffs will begin the middle of this year, with severance packages for salaried employees. The company cited the sharp downturn in purchases of motorcycles in recent years. Harley-Davidson will add 450 full-time, casual, and contract positions to its York, Pennsylvania facility.
