From BW intern, Mathias Morache:
The Idaho Statesman announced Tuesday that it will lay off 15 employees, including 6 newroom staff. This comes as the second wave of layoffs implemented by The McClatchy Company, the owner of the Statesman, in a plan to cut 1,400 jobs nationwide. This move, according to McClatchy, will save the company $100 million dollars in the next year. Nonetheless, amidst plunging stocks, CEO Gary Pruitt received an annual $800,000 bonus and company executives used the company jet to travel to locations an hour drive away.
