KPFA staff (both paid and unpaid) and listeners turned out in force November 4 for a lively noontime picket. The rally came as KPFA's parent network Pacifica appears to be moving ahead with layoffs of more than a quarter of the station's union staff. The Morning Show, Against the Grain, Hard Knock Radio and the Evening News seem slated for severe program changes and/or decimating cuts, along with other vital positions at KPFA.
KPFA's unionized workers pushed Pacifica's national board to "chop from the top"----proposing a sustainable budget that chops wasteful bureaucracy before scaling back programs and laying off staff members. But the board rejected the union's common-sense proposals, and Pacifica National Director Arlene Engelhardt----seen in this video----even refused to disclose her own salary when asked about it at Thursday's rally
