Involuntary pay reductions

by

5 comments

I mentioned yesterday a new program at the Democrat-Gazette seeking employees willing to take voluntary reduction of hours as a cost-cutting tool. (And, I was told today, this plan was imposed at other Hussman-owned newspapers in Arkansas, as was an earlier  wage and hiring freeze.)

Could be worse. Gannett today told its thousands of employees -- who include workers at KTHV in Little Rock and the Baxter Bulletin in Mountain Home -- that they must take a week off without pay in the first quarter of this year.

Lots more at the blog run by Jim Hopkins, former business editor at the Arkansas Gazette.
