    I'd be curious what people got from various papers.

    The one week per year from Tampa is the lowest I've heard. I know of other places that offered six months salary and two years medical benefits for everyone who was buyout eligible.

    If you don't want to post it yourself, PM me or someone else and have them do it.

    NYT chain in Florida: One week per year worked, medical ended at the end of the month the people were let go. (That's brutal...)

    All that wouldn't fit on one post?

    That NYT paper's deal was shamefully awful.
