American Express has announced that it will lay off nearly 300 people at its Weston location beginning in 2014. The layoffs come for a section of the company that deals with printing and distribution of credit card bills, according to an article by Doreen Hemlock in the September 26 Sun Sentinel.
"I think this is very unfortunate. I hate to see someone lose a job. I depend on people having money for my tips," said Maryann Albers, a waitress.
"I am sad to see these people losing their jobs. It is never easy to start over in the job market," said Mirium Gonzalez.
