Chicago State Cuts 300+ Jobs


Chicago – The state budget battle is having a big impact on one college.

Chicago State announced over the weekend it is laying off more than 300 employees.  Chicago State caters to a mostly minority and poor student population.

Layoffs include administrators and maintenance workers.  No faculty members are included in the current round of layoffs.

The cuts come despite a $20 million infusion from the state last week.  Before the money was allocated Chicago State had threatened to closes its doors on Sunday due to a lack of money.
