The community reacts to layoffs at Shell Convent Refinery
Local educator named ‘December Teacher of the Month’
CONVENT, La. (WGNO) — In St. James Parish, Ken Tureaud is surprised by the news that the Shell Convent Refinery is shutting down operations permanently and laying off a little more than one thousand workers.
“I feel for the people from the bottom of my heart, deep in my heart because they got families to take care of. There is not telling what responsibilities they have to take care of without a job,” Tureaud said.
Operations are being shut down due to fuel demand being hammered because of Covid-19.
“This area is supposed to be the richest parish in the State of Louisiana, but they’ve got a lot to show me,” he said.
Tureaud’s been a working man in Convent all his life. As a heavy equipment operator he says it has been tough to find work here.
“Applying for jobs and still couldn’t get jobs that I was looking to get. Not just to make money, but to do something that I love doing,” he said.
But he wants to offer hope to those workers from the Shell Convent Refinery who are now left without jobs.
“For me it was never easy. I never gave up. I prayed to the good Lord and let him take me where I needed to go,” Tureaud said.

ABC News Hit With Layoffs as Part of Disney Cuts
Radio Disney to Shut Down as Disney Undergoes New Round of Layoffs
ABC News has laid off a percentage of staff in the low single digits on Thursday as part of ongoing cuts across the Walt Disney Company, a source familiar with the matter told TheWrap.
An ABC News spokesperson declined to comment on the number of staffers laid off.
Earlier on Thursday, TheWrap reported that Disney was shuttering Radio Disney and Radio Disney Country as part of ongoing restructuring across the company. The 36 affected full- and part-time employees were notified Thursday and will all be laid off in February 2021.
Last month, Disney announced it was planning to lay off 32,000 employees — mostly from its theme parks division — in the first half of 2021.

L.A. looking at layoffs for as many as 1,900 workers, including 951 police officers
Faced with a growing financial crisis, Los Angeles city budget analysts recommended Friday that the city begin preparing for the elimination of nearly 1,900 filled positions, including 951 officers at the Police Department.
City Administrative Officer Rich Llewellyn advised Mayor Eric Garcetti and members of the City Council to lay plans for deep reductions at the LAPD, cutting the number of rank-and-file officers by roughly 10% while also eliminating 728 civilian jobs within the department.
If the city ultimately moves ahead with such reductions, the LAPD would likely have fewer police than at any point in 25 years.
In his 144-page report, Llewellyn said the cuts are needed to close a budget gap that’s expected to reach $675 million by June 30, a crisis prompted by lower than expected hotel taxes, parking fines and other revenue compared with the prior year. Because the fiscal year is nearly half over, Garcetti and the council have less time to eliminate the gap, leaving them with far more aggressive cost-cutting proposals than in previous months.
The council is expected to take up Llewellyn’s budget proposal in the coming weeks. The report recommends the elimination of positions at other city agencies, including 143 in the city attorney’s office, 45 positions at animal services and 27 in the Bureau of Engineering.
The budget proposal is viewed by some at City Hall as an attempt to wring concessions from the Police Protective League, the rank-and-file police officers’ union. Officers are on track to receive a 3.25% raise in January, followed by another 3% in 2022, and so far the union has shown no interest in forfeiting those increases.
For months, activist groups like Ground Game L.A. and the People’s City Council have called on City Hall to make deep reductions at the LAPD, which consumes roughly $3 billion per year, as part of the growing movement to defund or abolish police. Although the LAPD represents less than 30% of the overall budget, it consumes half of the city’s “unrestricted” funds, which Garcetti and the council are free to spend as they wish.
In the weeks following protests over the k–ling of George Floyd in Minneapolis, council members cut the LAPD by $150 million, taking the force down to 9,757 — its lowest level since 2008. If the latest proposal is adopted, department staffing would, at minimum, fall below 9,000.
Police Chief Michel Moore broached the possibility of LAPD layoffs earlier this week, saying such a move would be “devastating” for public safety. Homicides so far this have reached their highest point in a decade and the number of shooting victims is up 40%, Moore said.
The prospect of layoffs for police officers has been raised at City Hall before in recent years but failed to materialize. In 2012, while arguing in favor of a half-cent sales tax measure to support the city budget, Police Chief Charlie Beck warned that a failure to approve the increase would probably result in the layoffs of 200 officers.
Voters rejected the measure, but those public safety job cuts did not occur.

Walmart Confirms 1,200 Layoffs as Part of E-Commerce Reorganization
All Work – And Now Play: Thorogood Launches Its Infinity FD Outdoor Collection
Walmart has confirmed the layoffs of more than a thousand workers as part of a previously announced reorganization of its business.
According to Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notifications filed in Arkansas and New Jersey, 1,241 roles at the big-box chain will be eliminated. The company’s headquarters are based in Bentonville, Ark., while the offices for its Jet.com subsidiary are located in Hoboken, N.J.
In an email to FN, Walmart said the job cuts are intended to boost its omnichannel operations. Back in July, it revealed plans to undergo a restructuring of its business in the United States by consolidating divisions and getting rid of some managerial positions.
“As a part of taking those difficult steps, some office associates are affected if they are unable to find a different role with the company,” spokesperson Anne Hatfield said.
The changes come amid Walmart’s ongoing effort to consolidate its brick-and-mortar and e-commerce operations, as well as boost its U.S.-based online business, which recorded a 79% spike in the third quarter. Unlike other retailers, which have grappled with months-long store closures and a decline in consumer discretionary spending, Walmart saw heightened demand during the coronavirus pandemic as panicked shoppers loaded up on household goods and other essentials.
The influx of shoppers has led Walmart to hire by the masses at a time when a record number of jobs are being shed elsewhere. Since March, when the COVID-19 outbreak took hold in the U.S., the company has employed more than 500,000 new associates across its stores and supply chain. It also made plans to hire another 20,000 people for seasonal roles at its e-commerce fulfillment centers ahead of the holiday shopping season.

Northern Nevada military contractor warns of layoffs
Two employers with operations in northern Nevada have filed layoff notices with the state.
Two employers with operations in northern Nevada have filed layoff notices with the state.
DynCorp International, a private American military contractor, said it has not been awarded the new contract supporting the Naval Air Warfighting Development Center in Fallon. As a result, the company said more than 250 employees associated with the NAWDC contract will be laid off by the end of January.
In early January, the U.S. Navy awarded DynCorp International with a contract extension of $21.9 million. The center houses the famous “Top Gun” program. “Employment may end sooner based on direction from our customer the U.S. Navy,” the company said in its Nov. 30, 2020 letter to the state Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation.
Representatives for DynCorp did not respond Wednesday to a request for comment.
The notices were filed under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, which is meant to ensure employees have notice before significant layoffs so they have time to find work elsewhere.
Sodexo, a food service provider, said its 65 employees at the University of Nevada, Reno, were placed on temporary layoff status in March and it will continue that status for more than six months.
“The temporary layoffs may continue through February 2021 based on modifications of the academic calendar resuming,” according to Sodexo’s Nov. 9, 2020 letter to DETR.
A spokesperson for Sodexo told the Review-Journal that “wherever possible,” the company reassigns staff to other open Sodexo sites like grocery stores or warehouses that need extra help.
“We are utilizing a limited number of our University of Nevada, Reno team members to support catering efforts at the school and sporting events. When COVID regulations permit larger numbers of people in gatherings, we anticipate all our team members will be able to return to work,” the spokesperson said.
The layoffs come as new jobless claims for state unemployment benefits held steady last week from the prior week. DETR said on Tuesday that 15,419 new claims had been filed for the Unemployment Insurance and Pandemic Unemployment Assistance programs.

Walmart says for the fourth time during the pandemic it will be giving its 1.5 million U.S. part-time and full-time employees additional cash bonuses for their work.
State officials have agreed to grant $4.4 million in tax abatements. In exchange, Beyond Meat would build a 158,000-square-foot facility in Washoe County.
The COVID-19 pandemic was responsible for the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association opting to move NFR to Dallas this year, but the 10-day rodeo will be back in 2021.
MGM Resorts has cashed in on $700 million as the pandemic continues to impede the national gaming and hospitality industries.
The Transportation Department issued a final rule Wednesday covering animals on airlines.
Small businesses in unincorporated Clark County may now apply for up to $30,000 in grant funding, officials announced.
The Greyhound station at the Plaza Hotel in downtown Las Vegas is set to be replaced after being located there for nearly 50 years.
“This is going to bounce back quickly,” said Beacon Economics founder Christopher Thornberg.
Tony Hsieh’s Downtown Project drew its fair share of critics, but nevertheless helped transform downtown Las Vegas into a destination.
