Clarksville: 37 said laid off as printing shifts

The Leaf-Chronicle in Clarksville, Tenn., will move its printing to the nearby Tennessean, effective Nov. 30, Anonymous@1:55 p.m says — five weeks after area publishers’ jobs were combined in another money-saving consolidation move. The 37 Leaf-Chronicle production jobs eliminated are on top of nine others in “creative” (I believe that’s advertising production), the reader says. Laid-off workers got one week of severance pay per year worked, the reader says.

    Well isn’t that lovely? Jobs gone up there and even MORE burden on the antiquated and unreliable press here at 1100 Broadway.

    I hear the chillers should be running at peak performance just in time for the weather to cool off.

    Nashville has things under control, like spending, they have now spent over $38000.00 putting a overboard time clock system in. someone here must be cheating them out of 5 minutes somewhere.
