Bernie’s campaign is laying off some 200+ staff, and the media is portraying it as throwing in the towel.  Further investigation shows the opposite.  The “out of state” staff who work by phoning into other states are those being let go.  With only 10 states left to vote, concentration is changing to bolstering staff to win those primaries.  I am sure all these people understood they were “at will” employees serving a function no longer needed.  If Bernie through some new turn wins the nomination, they will be hired back.  This does not call for unhealthy speculation. Of course, those discharged with such unfortunate short notice, may feel dismayed, but, hopefully, they come to understand, this was a natural consequence of coming to an end stage of this campaign.  The idea is to finish well, and it sometimes means some painful steps.
