Job Cuts: Progressive Eliminates 54 Jobs

Cleveland, OH - Tough times forcing a major company to scale back and eliminate jobs.

Progressive Insurance confirmed to 19 Action News 54 jobs will be cut from the work force at Progressive's Commercial Auto Group.

This move comes after the company dished out $58M to put it's name on the Indians home field.

PR Spokeswoman Cristy Cote says Progressive met with each affected individual to offer help with the transition, including by providing separation packages that include cash compensation and outplacement assistance.

More than half of the workers were offered other positions within the company.
