"[Thursday] the city of Providence, Rhode Island sent out layoff notices to every single teacher in the city. Every single one of them. If you want to understand why this is happening, why wages in the US keep getting cut, this chart from Doug Henwood tells the story”
Closer to home (Portland, OR),
EUGENE, Ore. - Eugene 4J School District teachers got notice Friday if they will be laid off as part of efforts to balance the district budget.
The district sent out notices to 108 teachers and other instructional staff on Friday, said Kerry Delf with Eugene 4J. Many of those who received layoff notices work part-time.
The layoffs add up to the equivalent of 84 full-time jobs.
The layoff notices were based on seniority, Delf said.
The numbers could change depending on the state’s next budget forecast and the outcome of a vote in May on a proposed City of Eugene income tax to support Eugene 4J and Bethel schools.
