Board also imposes 20% pay cut on hundreds of maintenance workers

From The Miami Herald: The Miami-Dade School Board has voted to cut more than 200 jobs from its facilities department and give hundreds of maintenance workers a 20 percent pay cut. The layoffs are part of a reorganization that will save the school district $27 million. That is a fraction of what the district still has to cut. It expects to see its $4 billion budget slashed by at least $100 million.
