Oregon Lottery will cut jobs, pay amid coronavirus pandemic

Oregon Lottery officials will cut 60 jobs and furlough most other workers to address a budget gap opened by the coronavirus pandemic.
The cuts come six weeks after Oregonians last gambled on video lottery machines, which bring in most of the Lottery’s money.
Director Barry Pack said the 60 job cuts amounted to 13 percent of the agency’s staff. Another 61 percent of workforce will be placed on furloughs of at least 30 days, he said. Staffers will also take pay cuts between 10% and 15%.
The changes will save the state $7.4 million, the lottery agency said.
“Today is a hard day, but these reductions will help ensure Lottery continues to deliver needed dollars to Oregon now and in the long run,” Pack said in a statement. “That’s little consolation to the employees negatively impacted, however, and my heart goes out to each and every one.”
The sudden shutdown of the state’s video lottery terminals followed Gov. Kate Brown’s ban on dining inside restaurants and bars. The loss likely amounts to millions of dollars every day that would have been waged.
Lottery officials have also said sales are down for draw games such as Powerball.
The declines could soon reach other state agencies that rely on lottery funding, including the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.
Travel Oregon, the state’s tourism bureau, announced in April that it would cut one-third of its workforce.
