THOMAS (WKZO) -- Hemlock Semiconductor is cutting one-hundred jobs in mid-Michigan and another 300 in Tennessee.  The high-tech company says trade issues between the U.S., China and Europe are leading to the job losses.

The company's Saginaw County facility was upgraded and expanded five years ago, with a promise to have over 1,700 employees by 2012.  Now, there are nine-hundred people working at the site in Thomas Township.
