More layoffs in newspaper industry
Yesterday, Gannett Co. laid off 700 employees — including one of my dear friends who got the news this morning. Ugh.
Read about it here.
It’s said to be the largest single round of of newspaper layoffs since July 2009. Gannett is the largest U.S. publisher, in terms of circulation, and owns USA Today.
My friend was one of 13 people laid off in the newsroom of the Des Moines Register.

This is the way it is now, low level hardworking people are being laid off in industries and government while CEOs and administrators are pulling in outrageous salaries. People have to start making waves about it.
Newpaper journalism is no place to be now or in the future.
