This has been a tough year for employees at the Kansas City Star with ongoing layoffs and work furloughs hanging over their heads.
And Publisher and President Mi-Ai Parrish just made it rougher by announcing today in a memo that there are more job eliminations on the horizon at the McClatchy-owned newspaper.
The paper also recently announced a new digital paywall system.
Memo To: Co-Workers
RE: Reduction in Force
As we continue to be challenged by uncertain economic news, I have decided to restructure and realign some pieces of the business, eliminating several positions, as well as some open positions.
The employees affected by the reductions have been notified.
Job eliminations are a tough reality, and they are a difficult step. As we continue to restructure and strategically reinvent our operation for our future, you efforts are vital. Please ask me or any member of the senior team if you have questions.
