More Layoffs At My Company

    Well, management has slashed to the bone the newsrooms of the four dailies it owns. It's "restructured" management. Now, management is outsourcing ad building and laying people off in production and pre-press.

    No one - I repeat, no one - is safe.

    Thing is, management sent out an email announcing layoffs, but not whom would be let go nor when - although it just said "in the new year." But the notice did say it looks forward to our professionalism in the meantime.

    "We look forward to your professionalism" = "We really prefer that you <i>not</i> upper-deck the publisher's private toilet"

    "We'd prefer instead of questioning us or complaining, you just take it in the ass and believe whatever we tell you."
