HONOLULU (AP) - More than half the staff of Honolulu's Contemporary Museum is being laid off as it struggles with funding.
Twenty-five out of 48 employees will lose their jobs next month because officials say they need to offset the fall in market value of the museum's endowment.
Reductions also include canceling a "Japan Fantastic" exhibition showcasing the work of artists from Japan.
The museum's top administrator is also taking a 15% pay cut from her $100,000 salary.
The Bishop Museum laid off 14 of its workers in June to save money.
