That number include seasonal hires. The report shows they worked 8,925 hours during the 2 week period. That means around 110 of the 869 are seasonal – if they work full time.
Of course that means a lot of those job cuts have worked their way back on to the payroll, I estimate around 100. When the financial statements are finally issued we will have more details. They will be in no rush – the year end was April 30th. We will be lucky to see them in October.
