Dothan, AL (WSFA) - Tuesday, more Country Crossing employees will file for unemployment.

This particular filing will apply to those who work in the entertainment and restaurant venues, including Darryl Worley's Worley Bird Saloon, George Jones' Possum Holler Bed and Breakfast, John Anderson's Cafeteria, and Lorrie Morgan's Hot Chicken.

Last week, workers employed by the Houston Economic Development Authority or HEDA filed their paperwork.  

Those employees work mostly with the bingo operations of Country Crossing.

With the latest unemployment claims, early estimates indicate that more than $174,165 per week will be paid to out-of-work Country Crossing and HEDA employees.

The numbers are based on those eligible to file for unemployment and the state's going rate for unemployment benefits.

This is added to the loss of more than $6,400 per week in payroll taxes paid to the state by Country Crossing and HEDA.

Workers and employers will be gathering Tuesday from 1:00-3:00 PM.
