Augsburg Fortress job losses

Christian Century notes that several job losses have been announced at Augsburg Fortress:

Augsburg Fortress . . . announced . . . that it is eliminating 24 staff positions . . .

(The full title is ridiculously long!). The announcement explains that "it is eliminating 24 staff positions, discontinuing product lines and consolidating select overhead costs." It seems that at the moment Fortress Press, its scholarly wing, is not affected, but one can't help but be concerned. Let's hope that Fortress keeps going strong.
