More On The Gannett Furlough

Subscribe by email:

From former Tennessean columnist Tim Chavez on the Gannett layoffs.

You’ve got to give Gannett some credit for this action, which it says is in lieu of layoffs. Of all the newspaper companies, Gannett was the last to lay off people. Yet, staffing levels at most Gannett newspapers were lowest for most of the industry.

Still, to offset the severity of the furloughs on households, Gannett will allow employees to spread out the five days. That is good and humane. I hope the company can avoid further layoffs. The furlough is much preferable to losing one’s job.

Chavez is a great read when it comes to an insider’s view of what goes on at a major newspaper. He’s no longer at the Tennessean and now you can see his commentary at his personal blog, Political Salsa.
