And Now for Possible L.A. County Layoffs
It's not just the city of Los Angeles with budget woes, but the county, too. The massively large organization faces a $510.5-million budget deficit, which could mean layoffs for 100 employees, according to the LA Times. The budget shortfall, however, is different than the city's $222 million one. That's because the county is planning for a $22.721 billion budget, which is $885 million less than the one this year.
Cuts could be seen in the Sheriff's Department, libraries, social services, public health, public defendor and other departments and programs.
