Modesto-based Save Mart Supermarkets announced Friday that it was cutting 103 jobs from its distribution centers in Merced, Roseville and Vacaville, as well as in its labor relations department.
The company's news release didn't include the specific number of layoffs at the Merced center, which employs about 230 people.
Most affected employees will be offered a severance package, including outplacement services, said President and Chief Operating Officer Steve Junqueiro.
And this is in a region that already has 25% unemployment when you take into account those whose benefits have run out and they're no longer on the employment rolls.
So, Wingnut, when are you going to "create" a job for these folks with a wave of your magic wand?
