St. Vincent's Hospital Manhattan began laying off more than 300 workers and asked other employees for temporary pay cuts of 10% to 25% in an effort to stave off closing. Hospital officials said the 300 workers who got layoff notices included 32 medical residents, managers at all levels and members of 1199 SEIU, the hospital union, in jobs like dietary work, housekeeping, and transporting. The hospital also asked all workers for pay cuts lasting 120 days, the New York Times reports.
