A newspaper in central Pennsylvania cites the recession in eliminating three positions, including one in the newsroom.
The Centre Daily Times, based in State College, is also reducing wages for employees that make more than $25,000 a year. Those workers will have their wages cut from between 2.5 and 5 percent.
Publisher Susan Leath says the paper had to make difficult decisions in light of unprecedented economic challenges.
The cuts are part of restructuring by parent company, McClatchy Co., which announced earlier this month it was slashing its total work force by 1,600, or 15 percent.
The three positions being eliminated at the newspaper represent about 2 percent of its work force.
Other changes are planned including reducing the width of pages by an inch.
