Philadelphia Inquirer gossip columnist Dan Gross resigned, Jan. 16, as head of the Newspaper Guild of Greater Philadelphia to take a buyout package.
“My decision was not based on fear but on opportunity,” he said.
Perhaps he has gotten an offer to captain an Italian cruise ship.
Interstate General Media L.L.C., the parent company of the Inky, Daily News and Philly.com, has told the 550 members of the Guild. whose rank and file includes newsroom and advertising employees. that it wants to cut $8 million in wages and benefits from their contract which expires in October.
Those greedy capitalistic war pigs. Look for the union label! Strike brothers!
And welcome to Obamaworld where your pay is less and your costs are more.
