Stoughton Trailers raises pay to attract new employees 

Stoughton Trailers, in response to sales growth, is recruiting new employees by boosting its base pay, according to a release from the company. The company’s increased fourth-quarter order volume is prompting an expansion in its workforce.

In order to attract more workers, Stoughton Trailers increased its hourly base pay for several key entry-level and skilled positions: assemblers, $16; machine operators, $17; and welders, $18.25. The increased demand is expected to keep the company’s trailer builders and other staff steadily busy through 2021.
