That's what the owners of The Oregonian are doing.
"Today's announcement will result in operational efficiencies and it will result in only minor changes in our work flow – most of which readers won't even notice," Denny is quoted in The O's story. "Sadly, it does mean we will be saying goodbye to our longtime pressroom employees."
Sources tell WW that The O’s “minor changes in workflow” will be noticed by between 100 to 200 people who could lose their jobs.
The Oregonian will contract a Portland company, Signature Graphics, to print the paper.
Somehow, it seems unlikely that Signature's going to hire the folks being fired, so downtown Portland's losing a minimum of another 100 jobs. Although, in truth, The Oregonian stopped being a news source years ago. And I've been trying for some time to get them to quit throwing ads onto our property twice a week - I finally invited them to pay me for recycling their stuff, and they don't seem to want to do that, so ideally, they'll quit throwing stuff here.
