Deadline day at the Daily News
In a last-ditch attempt to avert another round of newsroom layoffs, guild members at the Los Angeles Daily News have asked management to let them voluntarily cut back their work hours. The Daily News plans to fire five staffers today - two staffers have reportedly accepted buyouts - as part of a plan to slash 15 percent from the newsroom budget. In an email to LA Observed, a guild member says wage cuts might still be on the table at the Daily News - althought it's left unclear to me whether this will happen despite, or in lieu of, layoffs.
