More Museum Job Losses
A bad end to the month, as the American Museum of Natural History becomes the latest museum to lay off staff in response to the ongoing fiscal crunch. Wide ranging staff cuts over the last few days have hit almost every section of the Museum, including science departments that have traditionally been shielded from job losses. Still no word on the final numbers, but it includes a number of my former colleagues and at least one good friend.
