I wish there was more information on Chester City worker layoffs

I’ve been laid off a few times. It’s humiliating and confusing, especially if it’s your first time. Once you’ve been through it once, you are less stressed and somewhat comfortable navigating all the baggage that unemployment dumps on you.


I’ve always struggled with the term ‘laid-off.’ A lay-off could be seasonal and have you out of work until business picks up. I guess that’s called a temporary lay-off these days. Yet, folks get straight up fired with no hopes of being rehired and it’s still called a lay-off. And then there’s something called unpaid leave. Somehow, that’s different from a temporary lay-off.


Regardless of how they describe it, when you’re laid off, you are out of work.

I would think the cuts to City employees are either due to Harrah’s ceasing payments to protect their cash flow or to the City projecting a slow down in cash payments of taxes, which (I think) ordinarily would be coming in around now. Do we know anything about their cash situation?
