Mayor Abramson Responds to Humana Announcement
Wednesday February 17, 2010
Mayor Jerry Abramson issued this statement today regarding the announcement by Humana Inc. that it intends to reduce its workforce on a net basis by approximately 1,400 positions, or five percent, over the course of 2010:
“My heart goes out to the employees and the families affected.
“I have talked with Governor Beshear, and we will work closely with Humana to make sure Louisville gets as many of the 1,100 new positions the company is creating.
“I’m hopeful the restructuring will make Humana a stronger company and put it back on the road to the levels of job expansion we have seen in recent years.”
