California Teachers to Rally as 26,000 Job Cuts Loom

California teachers are set to hold protests in more than a dozen cities today as about 26,000 may lose their jobs because of spending cuts the Legislature approved last month to keep the state from running out of money.

School districts across the most-populous U.S. state have been warning thousands of teachers that they may be fired as a result of California’s declining tax collections.

Not all teachers receiving notices will lose their jobs. Last year, about half were ultimately let go, according to the teachers union.

  1. If teachers are given notice on Friday March 13th of being laid off that is not 60 days notice. Does that qualify as a case for the WARN Act?
