Kansas City Star publisher Mi-Ai Parrish announced in a memo to staffers today another round of layoffs, the third since she took the helm in the summer of 2011. Just how many people are losing their jobs, and who those people are, is unknown at the moment.
Memo To: Co-Workers
RE: Reduction in Force
As we continue to be challenged by uncertain economic news, I have decided to restructure and realign some pieces of the business, eliminating several positions, as well as some open positions.
The employees affected by the reductions have been notified.
Job eliminations are a tough reality, and they are a difficult step. As we continue to restructure and strategically reinvent our operation for our future, you efforts are vital. Please ask me or any member of the senior team if you have questions.
