Los Angeles Times to cut 17 in press room

With $100 million in cuts across the Tribune Company looming in the newspaper division, seventeen pressmen at the Los Angeles Times are the goal of this latest purge of workers.

Seven of the current workers have volunteered to leave so far, with one pressman terminated, to help the remaining men and women make this difficult decision. 

New apprentices may be brought on to fill the void, at a much lower wage of course, with little or no training.

Other departments in Operations at the Times have been reduced to skeleton staffing levels from previous downsizing, and no word regarding staff reductions in editorial, yet.
