Source Says Furloughs Will Be Forced on Register Employees
An insider confirms what until now had been a rumor whispered around the water coolers at the Orange County Register: employees will be subjected to furloughs in the next quarter.

Looking at a pay stub and doing some quick arithmetic, my Cleared Throat figured the loss in wages represents just shy of a 10 percent pay cut.
It remains unclear whether the furloughs also apply to the executive suites.
