Philadelphia Inquirer Employees Hit the Streets to Protest Layoffs


Just days after the company threw a party to celebrate 190 years in business, those who helped the Philadelphia Inquirer achieve this milestone – its employees – were warned of coming layoffs. On Wednesday, Inquirer newsroom staff, members of TNG-CWA Local 38010, walked off the job to protest the potential layoffs and to show the company that journalists and the public are united in supporting keeping the Philadelphia Inquirer vibrant and protecting local news.
