More layoffs

The Toronto Star employs 1,300 staff across all divisions and reported that 166 employees will take “severance packages at the country’s largest circulation daily newspaper.”

 It was reported in the Toronto Star article on Dec. 9, 2009 that those employees have 90 days left at the company.

 “The cuts come as the newspaper’s parent company, Torstar Corp., moves ahead with what it says will likely be the biggest restructuring in the Toronto Star’s history.”

It seems that position cuts are becoming more and more popular these days.

 Check this out. It is a video that was shown in the journalism program. Kind of blows your mind.
