Abbott is decreasing its employees but others are hiring right now! Check it out! (Isn't it tempting?)

Abbott Laboratories is closing one of its manufacturing plants in the Puerto Rico town of Barceloneta next year, delivering another blow to the U.S. territory's once-thriving pharmaceutical sector, officials said Thursday. It is unclear how many workers will be affected, although Barceloneta Mayor Wanda Soler told The Associated Press that the plant is the smallest one of several that Abbott operates in the north coastal town. Abbott spokesman Scott Stoffel confirmed that the plant would cease manufacturing in mid-2015.

Don't forget, hundreds of biopharma companies are hiring! (We know you can't resist.)
