I bet the personnel staffs are gearing up to be helpful like they were the last time there were "as yet unidentified" positions to be reduced.

"Borstrom explained that some departments of the hospital could stand to be reduced, while others are growing. As such, the budget calls for cuts to be made to about 40 as yet unidentified full-time positions, while it simultaneously calls for hiring as many as 25 full-time employees."

I hope I don't get sick waiting to find out if I have a job or not.
