Union-Tribune to offer buyouts to employees

San Diego Union-Tribune has offered buyouts to about six percent of their work force and threatened layoffs if not enough bail ship voluntarily. Luckily for editorial cartoonist Steve Breen, his position is not on the chopping block. In an email to me he states:

They told me that I am on the list of people ineligible to apply for the buyout. My editors and David Copley have always treated me very well…they seem to have a real commitment to good editorial cartooning here. Which baffles me why they like me so much.

Chalk that up as a win.
