Members of WaPo‘s Newspaper Guild have written a letter to the publisher Katherine Weymouth expressing “disappointment” about her nearly “$500,000 bonus” and 10 percent pay raise”.
Dear Ms. Weymouth,
As employees of the Washington Post and members of the Newspaper Guild, we were disappointed to hear that you accepted a bonus of nearly $500,000 at a time when the sacrifices made by so many people who work here – or used to work here – are still fresh.
