Planned overhaul would trade highly paid workers for fresh blood

Environmental engineers in Chicago, secretaries in Philadelphia and attorney advisers in Seattle are among hundreds of U.S. EPA employees who could soon be headed for the exits. The agency is preparing to offer buyouts and "early outs" to up to 1,375 employees as part of an overhaul of its national workforce. The staff reductions come as the agency grapples with steep budget cuts, limits on new hires and changing technologies.
