Gannett to have second round of furloughs

We reported last week that Gannett, which owns the Cincinnati Enquirer, just had a round of furloughs for a lot of its employees...aka a week's unpaid vacation.

Well, an internal memo obtained by the FishbowlDC blog details plans for a second round of furloughs, "consisting of at least one week of unpaid leave, to be taken in April, May or June".

There's also plans to ask the higher-paid employees to take either a second week of furlough, or a one week reduction in salary.

Check that memo above for more details. We really hate writing these stories, and don't have the heart to say any more about this one in particular...
