Los Angeles Times Pressmens 20 Year Club: Another Round of Buyouts at the Tribune Company

Los Angeles Times Pressmens 20 Year Club: Another Round of Buyouts at the Tribune Company

I thought we were told we would likely see more employees, not less. It didn't take very long for the cuts to resume and hopefully it will only be the dead weight on top.

We cannot afford to continue to lose editorial employees. If Management continues to take them off of our shelves, no one will have any reason to shop in our store. No customers, no store.

As a thirty-five year Los Angeles Times employee, I have lost track of how many buyouts we have witnessed since the inception of downsizing at the newspaper in 1992.
But every buyout at the newspaper brings sad faces among my colleagues and myself, wondering when our pink slips will arrive?

With the majority of funds being pushed to the online edition of the Times, and very little spent on the hard copy, the quality of not only the writing but the hard copy of the newspaper is ebbing away.

The time is nearing when our children will think back to the good old days, and reminisce about newspapers.
