San­ders to Cut Hun­dreds of Staff Mem­bers

The Economic Times - - Around The World - 6469

We s t L a f a y a t t e , I n d : Bat­tered by four de­feats in Tues­day night’s pri­maries, Bernie San­ders is plan­ning to lay off hun­dreds of cam­paign staffers across the coun­try and fo­cus much of his re­main­ing ef­fort on win­ning the June 7 Cal­i­for­nia pri­mary. The Ver­mont sen­a­tor re­vealed the changes a day af­ter Hil­lary Clin­ton’s vic­to­ries widened her del­e­gate lead and left her all but cer- tain to win the Demo­cratic pres­i­den­tial nom­i­na­tion.

De s pi t e t he c h a n g e s , San­ders said he would re­mainin the racethroughthe party’s sum­mer con­ven­tion and stressed that he hoped to bring staff mem­bers back on board if his po­lit­i­cal for­tunes­im­proved.But­po­lit­i­cal ex­perts say the lay­offs sig­nal that San­ders is be­gin­ning to ac­cept that he will not be the Demo­cratic nom­i­nee and is now fo­cused on pulling the party to­ward a more pro­gres­sive agenda. “We want to win as many del­e­gates as we can, so we do not need work­ers now in states around the coun­try,” San­ders said in an in­ter­view.

Re­sults in mice show that in­hibit­ing a cir­cuit be­tween two brain re­gions pro­tects against binge alcohol drink­ing “We don’t need peo­ple right now in Con­necti­cut. That elec­tion­isover.We­don’tneed them in Mary­land. So what we are go­ing to do is al­lo­cate our re­sources to the 14 con­tests that re­main, and that means that we are go­ing to be cut­ting back on staff.” Whenasked­how­manypeo­ple would be let go, San­ders did not give an ex­act num­ber but did say, “It will be hun­dreds of staff mem­bers.”

Pre­vent­ing peo­ple from binge drink­ing could pre­vent them from be­com­ing al­co­holics later in life
