The Meltdown

Who Will Bail Out James Dobson?

James Dobson could really use some divine market intervention. Dobson's organization, Focus on the Family, announced yesterday that it will be laying off 202 jobs—about 20 percent of its workforce. The news comes after Focus on the Family pumped over $500,000 into supporting Proposition 8 in California. This is the third consecutive year that the organization has laid off employees. Its workforce now stands at 950, down from a peak 1,500 in 1991.
