Bender Road and 1700 W. Cornell St. in Glendale. Michael Polsky is the court-appointed receiver. Seventy-six of the 92 jobs are in ‘general labor,’ and the job losses will be permanent, effective immediately. Milwaukee Workforce Development Area Rapid Response will offer services to the affected business and workers.
