Trinidad's only hospital is cutting jobs to save money. It's a move that has many hospital workers angry.

Monday, several employees held a protest outside of Mount San Rafael hospital.

The hospital plans to cut about 25 jobs by Friday. That's close to 20 percent of its workforce.

The cuts are being made across the board.

Since the beginning of the year, the hospital has lost nearly 400-thousand dollars.

Hospital administrators says the cuts are needed to make sure the hospital survives.
