Random Pixels has obtained a list of 555 Miami-Dade employees who received lay-off notices this week.
According to a note attached to the list, it's "comprised of 555 employees – 290 with classified service rights and 265 with no classified service rights. Those individuals with N/A under new department and new title have been referred to pipeline transition."
One notable name on the list is Victoria Mallette O'Bryan. O'Bryan was once Mayor Carlos Alvarez's $125,000 a year director of communications.
When Alvarez was recalled by county voters last March, O'Bryan was transferred to the County's Office of Emergency Management and given the title of "Emergency Management Governmental Coordinator." Her salary: $85,020 a year.
Of course, as we've learned in the past, losing your cushy county job doesn't really mean you lose your cushy county job as the Miami Herald's Martha Brannigan explained in today's paper:
Roughly 40 of the 555 pink slips delivered to employees last week reflected the elimination of duplication “in administration, back-of-house and IT-type jobs’’ resulting from the reorganization. Under civil-service rules, many of those workers will have a chance to bump others from jobs or to fill funded vacancies.
