Washington Post: Metro considers buyouts to stave off 1,400 layoffs due to pandemic-created financial crisis

Washington Post: Metro considers buyouts to stave off 1,400 layoffs due to pandemic-created financial crisis. “Metro plans to offer buyouts to avoid having to lay off 1,400 employees as it searches for ways to cut more than $176 million from its pandemic-ravaged budget. The transit agency’s board on Thursday will consider offering retirement-eligible employees a bonus to quit so Metro can freeze or eliminate their positions and save jobs for younger, less expensive workers.”
