A major part of Andalusia's economy is laying off employees.  

Shaw Industries is being forced lay off about 60 workers because of the current volatile housing market. 

The company manufactures and distributes various types of flooring which is directly associated with the housing deficit.  

Around 1,300 people are employed at the Andalusia plant. 

Officials say many of those employees who are being layed off will be offered other jobs inside the company.
