Wednesday is the deadline to accept buyouts at the Dallas Morning News. On that day, managers will discover that they are way short of their buyout goal. That means lay-offs will come shortly thereafter. Coming on the heels of the TexMo layoffs, where Sam Gwynn was let go and everyone had to take a salary cut (the company said 2 percent, but staffers there say it’s as much as 10 percent for some folks), it ain’t a good week for the wordsmiths. How are we doing within the D Empire, you ask? Great. Awesome. Just working away, under my desk, typing with one hand, holding onto my effing hat with the other.
Update: I should have pointed you to this website, which is keeping track of the buyout as it unfolds.
