Item: Century Publishing trims staff by 50/Brian Walker, CDA Press
More Info: Century has about 25 employees left. It employed 155 in the 1990s, but equipment upgrades and technologies later reduced that number slightly. At its peak in sales in the middle of 2007, the company employed 135. But it was restructured twice in 2008, which reduced the staff each time.
Question: Have you or anyone close to you lost a job since the economy tanked last fall?
