Paper Cuts Reports Only 1,031 Layoffs So Far This Year

2010layoffs.png

We’d like to see a total halt or even a reverse in jobs lost in the newspaper biz, but hey we’ll take a slow down. With an average of only 500 layoffs a month so far this year, it’s slower. In 2008 it was nearly 16,000 according to Erica Smith and her nifty Google map, Paper Cuts. In 2009 it was around 15,000 nationwide.

So either the economy is getting better or there’s no one left in the newspaper business to layoff.

Our thanks to Ms. Smith for being obsessive about her project.
