Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit organization behind the beloved public television show “Sesame Street,” will give the boot to 10% of its staffers as part of an overhaul on Monday, the Daily News has learned. The organization “is constantly assessing where we must invest in response to today’s rapidly changing digital environment,” Sesame Workshop said in a statement Tuesday.
“We have concluded that we must reduce our workforce by approximately 10% to strategically focus our resources,” the organization added. Sesame Workshop said the cuts won’t be apparent to “Sesame Street” viewers. Big Bird, the Count and Oscar the Grouch are likely to retain their jobs.
