Workplace Issues Today: L.A. lays off school employees

Over a 1000 L.A. school district employees will be laid off on Wednesday, with thousands more being reassigned. 1,600 of those being reassigned will be working fewer hours or making less money than their previous position. No teachers were laid off in this round of cuts, with those who run offices, libraries and do maintenance being the hardest hit. Many say that the cuts will be extremely detrimental to the schools, and that the communities that have been built are threatened. On Tuesday, more than 100 people protested at district headquarters against the layoffs and reassignments. The school district says it is necessary to cut costs.
