MCA gives loans to quake-hit staff

MCA/Universal has begun offering no-interest loans to its employees, to help them in the aftermath of the recent 6.6 earthquake.

The program, started a week ago, offers loans of up to $ 2,000 to those employees who suffered extensive losses, who were left homeless, who have lost several days of work or who have commuting problems because of the quake.

So far, more than 500 people have applied for the loans.

Those eligible for loans are employees in need who are in good standing.

Company officials say they don’t expect repayment to begin for at least 90 days.

Counseling seshs

The company has brought in a psychologist to talk to employees about post-quake emotional stress for adults and children. Also, officials from the Federal Emergency Management Agency have been invited onto the lot to hand out applications for federal aid.

MCA/U officials are offering shuttle service to Metrolink stations for employees who have to commute in from areas that were cut off when several freeway overpasses collapsed.
