The Observer's Oliver Haydock reports that doormen are getting laid off, mostly in luxury rental buildings: "Because of falling rents and increasing vacancies, landlords are looking at tighter balance sheets, and that just might mean a thinning of the ranks in the doorman brigade. So far in 2009, 32BJ, which also represents cleaners, porters, supers and security guards, has implemented approximately 70 workforce reductions, which is roughly the same amount as in all of last year."
