    Who in their right mind would or could take this gig for $20K, and in L.A. County?

    What an industry we've selected. Wow.

    How is full-time 35 hours per week? How is any newspaper job 35 hours per week, for that matter? I probably work that many hours per week as a stringer.

    I interviewed for this job right out of college. It was offered to me, but I turned it down because it was a Sports Editor/Photo Editor combo position and I wasn't comfortable enough as a photographer.
    Oh yeah, this was in 1975.

    Full time is what a company says it is. You just don't get overtime unless you work over 40 hours per week, unless you get conned into working salary at this place.

    If that's what they are paying, and it's a one-man band - it's not that vital to their success.

    And you'll be covering kids who drive nicer cars than yours.

    You know, with some of the salaries now being offered in our industry, I'd say this is where the NBA, NFL and Major League Baseball want to go.

    With the extra five hours a week, you can always get a part-time job at The Max to make ends meet, like Kelly Kapowski did.
  11. No, but Jessica Spano-Belding's daughter is a head cheerleader.

    Is it just stinginess? Or can papers like these seriously only offer $20K?

    Why would they not just hire stringers to fill their sports section?
