Radio ministry FOCUS ON THE FAMILY has laid off 110 workers, including 15 managers. The laid-off workers will be paid through AUGUST 20th.
The latest layoffs, raising the total number of layoffs in the past two years to 405, leave the company's staff at about 750, just over half the size of the staff in 2002, when the operation was still headed by JAMES DOBSON, who departed the company earlier this year and is now hosting another radio feature.
"The economy continues to be in recession," company spokesman GARY SCHNEEBERGER told the COLORADO SPRINGS GAZETTE. "And people who have given in the past are having financial difficulties of their own."
