The Gannett Company, the nations largest newspaper publisher, said on Wednesday that it would force thousands of its employees to take a week off without pay in an effort to avoid layoffs.

Most of our U.S. employees including myself and all other top executives will be furloughed for the equivalent of one week in the first quarter, Craig A. Dubow, the chairman, president and chief executive, wrote in a memorandum to employees.

USA Today is an asswipe rag. I always rip up the complimentary copy I get in hotels when traveling.
If crAP stops printing their version of the news, does anyone notice?
You have the option to request the paper not be delivered to your room and you'll get a 75 cent credit to your bill.
I’ll remember that!
I wonder what THEY do?
