    I make the same as I did 10 years ago, in my second year at my paper, when I jumped up to the highest editorial classification.
    Actually. I make less. I pay more taxes. The cost of living has gone up significantly in a decade. Health benefits cost more.

    They just didn't formally announce it, is all. Big deal.

    In this day and age, newspapers have their employees by the balls because all they have to say is: "You still have a job...just no raises" and all the employees take is that they still have a job.

    Newsflash. One month before I was let go, I was told no raises either!

    So, forgive my ignorance, but how high up do the union jobs go? Is it mostly junior editorial staff and beat guys? or does it extend to senior management and established columnists? Thanks
