Whatever happened to the local newspaper? Seventeen employees laid off at Praire Mountain Publishing. Where did these jobs go?
According to Al Manzi “Its a broader initiative to outsource print and digital advertising.” Does Al really mean, “Its the CEO’s decision to contract these jobs to India or Indonesia, where labor is cheaper, to enable us to lower costs and increase profit.”
Maybe not. Because Al says he “values our employees.” Are these the same valued employees that are told the quality, the speed, the digital expertise is better in some third world country! The same valued employees with a severance package about the size of your CEO’s monthly stipend. Or is it the valued employees in India? Whos next to go Al. Maybe you can find a way to outsource photographers, editors, sales reps or how about the layout people. That would really add to the bottom line.
Your company is like the auto industry, one big bailout. You just pretend to care about the employees, the real caring is the profit margin. Hello corporate America.
