Lay Offs and Early Retirements Go Into Effect in Baltimore City

As a part of Baltimore City’s efforts to reduce its $121 million budget deficit, approximately 100 employees were laid off or forced to take early retirement as the new fiscal year begins.

The city’s labor commissioner said she had a list of 122 terminated employees but predicted that the eventual number would be slightly smaller because two departments, transportation and public works, were still in the process of moving some workers into different positions as a way of saving their jobs. Some are being asked to accept demotions, Commissioner Deborah F. Moore-Carter said.
