Local newspaper to lay off 130 workers

My local newspaper, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, is in the act of doing something that is occurring at a lot of city print media: laying off even long-time workers. The other local newspaper, the Fort Worth Weekly, gave coverage to some of the reactions of the employees and former employees. A few years back, the other major city newspaper, the Dallas Morning News, also laid off numerous workers over a span of 3-4 years. I'm going to be discussing the print media in a little more detail next week.
