Jeanne Boeh, economics professor at Augsburg College, was mentioned in an article in the Minneapolis Star Tribune about employee layoffs at Target headquarters in Minneapolis.
In light of the layoffs – a result of the closing of all Canadian Target stores – Boeh said there is hope for the close to 550 out-of-work employees.
“If you’re going to be laid off, now is a good time because jobs are picking back up,” she said.
