Sesame Street Boots Workers

This announcement is brought to you by the letter “F.” Sesame Workshop, which produces the PBS series Sesame Street, pink-slipped 67 of 355 staff positions recently, as it seems even the classic Muppet characters cannot escape the economic pinch. Founded in 1968, the Sesame Workshop functions from product licensing and by selling its programs to PBS. Last year’s revenue totaled $145 million, while operating expenses equaled $141 million.
