Layoffs looming Thursday in Nassau County

December 15, 2011 5:12:41 AM PST
Christmas is 10 days away, and 400 Nassau County workers will find out if they're getting laid off Thursday.

County leaders need to trim the budget, with a $310 million deficit looming.

Another 200 workers could be demoted by the end of the year unless union leaders agree to $75 million in concessions.

Labor leaders say that's the same as cutting an employee's pay as much as $35,000 per year.
