Layoff Notices at Plain Dealer Newsroom Going Out Today
Posted: 7/31/2013  |  By: Kim Wendel | wkyc.com
Between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. Wednesday, Plain Dealer journalists will learn if they still have their jobs. Layoffs will reduce the newsroom by about one-third of its staff.

Late Tuesday afternoon, editors, reporters, photographers and other staff were told to wait by their phones Wednesday morning.

That's when they will be told whether to show up for work or not. Harsh? Efficient? Is that any better than getting a pink slip in your paycheck?
