Go Woke, Go Broke: Hallmark Edition
quote:

Crown Media Family Networks had a round of staff cuts yesterday.

“As part of a restructure to realign roles and responsibilities, some positions were eliminated,” the company said in a statement to Deadline. “This was done in an effort to decrease redundancies, optimize effectiveness, and create more support level roles.”

The company would not comment on the number or size of layoffs involved. According to sources, about 20 employees were impacted in Media Operations, On-Air Promotion, Research and Administration. The list is said to include long-term Crown Media employees who have worked more than 20 years at the company.

These fired employees will now return home to their small towns, accidentally bump into a rugged and mysteriously handsome man who owns a local bar, and rediscover the true meaning of Christmas.

Was there an equitable distribution of race among those who were let go?

Hard to go broke when you don't have to pay your employees.

Nothing in your article points to being "woke" is the reason for these cuts. Traditional media is changing bigly and cutting bloat was probably needed.

So you're saying they're downsizing from about 50 new Hallmark movies a year to 45?

In other words - y'all have been here 20 years and make too much money. We'll retire you and pay someone else to do your job cheaper.

Happens everywhere.

I was under the impression they only had 1 and fired him/her years ago and just kept telling the same story with different actors in different settings.

Hallmark went “woke”?
What did they do? I don’t think I ever watch their channel. I do buy their greeting cards once in a while.

They only need 3 employees. One to make a copy of a previous script, one to change a few details and names, and one to answer the phones and restock the copier.

My wife watches it constantly. This last Christmas season they made a strong push to have the main characters be gay or non-white or both. The company even had a press release saying their conservative view points were changing with the times and trying to be "more inclusive"

So they cut the high level earners and replaced them with midlevel ones who will do the same work for half the price.
