Always wondered who was making the big dollars on the 9th floor. I look forward to seeing who’s out for two weeks. This will be a moral booster in the newsroom.

Shooter has a well-aimed point. Perhaps the AzCentral's "Data Central" now will list the salaries of top AZ Gannett managers like they do for county and state governments and the universities? This would be a valuable service for the angry mobs of readers who wonder why the Republic won't deliver the paper to them cause they live in far away places like Casa Grande.

"Thank you sir, May I have another?"

Um, if you're trying to identify who's making $90,000+ based on whether they take one or two furlough weeks this quarter, how would you tell the difference between someone taking one furlough week plus one paid vacation week?

They should just fire the employees making over 90k a year. Few if any of them are critical to actually printing the paper on a daily basis and some are probably culpable in the decline of the paper.

If I were working there I'd seriously be pounding the pavement looking for another job, in a diffent field, before the bottom completely falls out.

The difference between disclosing salaries of county, state and university employees and those of private business (like newspapers) is that one is paid by tax payers and is public record. The other is frankly none of your business.

" The other is frankly none of your business."

Given that we taxpayers may be required to bail out the newspapers next, soon it will be very much our business to know what everyone in the newsrooms make...

"I believe these employees will embrace and support this change."

Gee, where have I heard that before?

Maybe Hopey McChange himself will reassure them via the glow of his magic teleprompter!
