Nugget jobs

A TSF reader wonders why Sun Media hasn't offered laid off Sudbury Star composing room employees two comp jobs available at the North Bay Nugget.

The e-mail reads:

"With the whole comp room laid off on Black Tuesday at the Sudbury Star, you would think the company would have the common decency to let them have first crack at the two comp room jobs being created in North Bay, (they will be posted this week).

"Sudbury's comp work will be done in North Bay, a little more than an hour's drive from Sudbury. It would appear people making decisions really could care less about the people that worked so hard to make these newspapers what they are today."

TSF's guess is the new comp room workers will be paid less than what the experienced, laid off Star workers would expect to be paid.

Lay off experienced, higher paid employees, hire novices for lower wages. The new reality at Sun Media.
