    I'm told by someone higher up on totem pole whom I trust that our favorite stomping grounds are being monitored by Birmingham, looking for "reasons" to thin the herd.

    Be careful out there, everyone.

    I've worked for 3 different national newspaper chains and CNHI was, by far, the worst - the worst in foresight and initiative in its treatment of employees, its health care coverage and costs ... I could go on and on.

    The CNHI paper I left recently - well, except for closing its doors for good (and those rumors already are out there) it didn't seem, at the time I left a handful of months ago, there was much else management could to do lower newsroom morale.

    Nationwide or at particular shops? Our last round of layoffs there was a rumor about a corporate ratio for bodies per circulation but that was never official.

    Doesn't matter. He's telling you to CYA here.

    It's the first thing that pops up in any Google search for "cnhi furlough."

    From what I've heard, it's official. Or as close as official can get.

    At a particular CNHI shop I'm very familiar with, there haven't been any hires to replace four or five departees over the past year. And they don't plan on filling the positions, ever. Just pile the extra work on the people still there while using improper (to put it lightly) practices involving "freelancers." CNHI is trying to get that "staff" ratio down to what it considers par.
  8. If "freelancers" are working in the offices, that's a Dept. of Labor violation. And it brings big financial penalties, as in fines. Our place (and many others) had to amend those practices.
