The Kansas City Star will lay off 10 employees in its accounting division sometime in February and outsource the jobs, Marketing Director Tracy Hazen said Thursday.
The layoffs are in addition to 50 employees throughout the company The Star said Nov 10 it would lay off...
Star Publisher Mark Zieman said in an internal memo Sept. 17 that some McClatchy newspapers planned to outsource some financial functions “that can be performed effectively offsite” using Infosys Technologies Ltd. as the vendor and that The Star would consider outsourcing its financial functions to Infosys.
Kansas City, we have a problem. The Kansas City Star cut 120 jobs in June, and another 65 jobs in September, and another 50 in November. The paper raised its newsstand price from 50 cents to 75 cents in October. (And yes, the headquarters of Infosys is in India.)
