Fort Valley to lay off 100

FORT VALLEY, Ga. — Officials at Fort Valley State University say the school's efforts to cut costs will result in about 100 employees losing their jobs.

The Telegraph of Macon reports that the employees are mostly temporary and part-time workers.

Fort Valley State Vice President Canter Brown said the university notified the employees Friday, after getting approval of its plan from the Board of Regents last week.

Officials say most of those affected are part-time professors, and that exact number is uncertain because there are accreditation questions surrounding the elimination of some of those positions.

Because the part-time professor positions are under contract, the cuts won't become effective until the spring semester starts.

However, for 28 non-faculty positions, the layoffs are immediate.

This will be a common theme when the mandatory cuts come because our elected officials have not done their job with the Super Committee. They want it to look loke they couldn't do anything about it. When the real cuts come, you are going to see massive unemployment. All because those currently in Office wouldn't or couldn't reach a logical agreement for fear of what it would have meant in the election. Throw any serving Politician out of office, because they obviously have only their own interests at heart. I will even bet a Hardee's Chili Dog that none of them are layed off, nor their benefits affected.

If anyone thinks that things are bad at ASU, they should take a gander at what is going on in "the valley." FVSU management couldn't balance a checkbook, nevertheless a budget for a university.
