Kleinpeter opts for paycuts due to rising cost of raw milk

Sunday, October 16, 2011 - 1:54pm

Kleinpeter dairy workers are facing a blow to their pocketbooks. That’s because the Louisiana-based dairy announced an across the board two and a half percent pay cut.

NBC33 News learned that the pay cut is happening because the price of raw milk is near $2.50 a gallon. Kleinpeter officials say even management will get a cut in pay, all in an effort to keep their milk prices lower. They also say the pay cuts should only be temporary.

A Kleinpeter rep also tells us they're doing everything they can internally to keep from passing the rising cost of milk on to consumers.
