Furlough

Media General announced a mandatory, 15-day furlough — a repeat of 2009.

In order to reach our cash flow goal for the year, which has again been lowered from our initial expectations, we must cut expenses in the second half of the year. One of the fastest ways to flow expense savings to the bottom line, without broad-based permanent layoffs, is a furlough program – something we had hoped we would not need to do this year. I am sorry to say that Media General employees at all levels will be asked to take 15 furlough days in the second half of this year. — Marshall Morton

Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit…
