According to a Thursday filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Midway gave a 60-day notification to the employees on Monday under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act.

I thought Midway Chicago people were safe. Sorry to hear that they lost their jobs as well. Hopefully they find new ones soon and the ones that kept their jobs show that they deserved it by making better games than old Midway (R.I.P.).
