Four More added to the layoff list at the LA Times

The rapidly shrinking staff at the Los Angeles Times has finally begun to slow it’s descent, yet unfortunately we lost an additional four long term employees in the Operations Department over the last two weeks.

Ensworth Powell (at bottom) over thirty years as an electro-tech.
John Pairman (at left) over thirty years as an electro-tech.
Tom Miller (right) thirty-eight years as an machinist.
Roy Farmer (not pictured) thirty-seven years working as a machinist.
The layoffs have eased but will never stop as the newspaper struggles to remain in the black while advertisers continue seeking other platforms to hock their wares.
