I've mention my co worker, friend, and generally good guy Todd on this blog a time or three. He's two or three spots behind me in senority and around here you tend to pal up with the guys you came on board with.
When we took over the San Mateo County Times, Todd worked his ass off to get it up to speed. He worked 12 hour days, 7 days a week for a while. After a while, things calm down and Todd gets to work like a regular person.
Here's Todd's post on his blog about how the Mercury eliminated his job after he worked so hard to get it running right. He's not happy and I'm not happy for him. In the last cutback we eliminated 8.4 FTE's (That's Full Time Equivilents, or Employees. 8.4 equals 8 full jobs and two additional shifts)
Give Todd a read and see how our indsutry is in its death throes.
