Latrobe Valley residents have started a petition, calling on Engie and Wesfarmers to show their support for the community amidst the worst job crisis in decades.
This follows Coles and Target announcing they'll close their Mid Valley Shopping Centre stores in the coming months, while 60 rehab workers at the Hazelwood Power Station site are being made redundant 6 months earlier than expected.
The petition opened earlier this week and concerned residents are urging the multi-billion dollar companies to forget their bottom lines and protect local jobs.
You can see the petition here and express your opinion.
