Layoffs Happen Even Where “Everybody Knows Your Name”

Filed under: General HR Buzz9:14 am

The man who inspired the character Sam Malone on the TV sitcom Cheers has been laid off from his job at the Boston landmark bar.

Cheers, formerly known as the Bull and Finch, is where Doyle served 5,000 customers a day for the past 35 years.

Tom Kershaw, the bar’s owner, says the economy is to blame.

Kershaw acknowledged that it was a difficult decision. “Business is way off,” he said, adding that he would continue to send Doyle a weekly paycheck until the end of the year. “It was very tough. Personally, for me, it was a disaster. Eddie and I have been friends for 40 years.”
