" And you'll have to fill in the blank on this Don Katich guy, I don't know what the hell he does at the N-P except act as Wendy's personal Wormtongue every time they lose in court." -- KEYT may soon be facing two separate class action lawsuits, both filed against the news station by former workers. According to prosecuting attorney Bruce Anticoni, an unsuccessful mediation occurred on 3/16 that attempted to reconcile the original claim, filed by former employees Carolyn Diacos and Darren Penquite, which stated that KEYT didn’t properly compensate for overtime and forced people to forfeit unused vacation time. In the new suit, likely to be filed this week, Diacos (who will be dropped from the original complaint) and another former intern are suing the station for violating intern labor laws, claiming that interns would work for over a year in substantial, long-hour production capacities and that they made up 20 to 25 percent of the company’s workforce.

"Interesting that the possibly returning employees are asking reader to cancel their subscriptions and not to advertise in the paper, which would have significant financial impact on the paper. I woud imagine once those employees are hired back, if subscriptions and advertisers do not come back, then routine layoffs would be necessary.
A good case of biting the hand that feeds you."
As those illegally fired employees have been on the bread-line for five years, I hardly think they're being very well "fed."
