Overall McClatchy had a number they wanted to cut to. Since naturally bigger papers have more bodies to sacrifice, they cut deeper last time than smaller papers, yet the overall expense cut was applied to the company as a whole.
Thus, now that July numbers are coming in you see the smaller papers (who didn't necessarily have to cut deep) that are having to layoff more people, institute furloughs, etc., to make their internal numbers (margin).
Don't be surprised if you see "smaller" papers continue to trim off appendages. Also, we are past the threshold for a WARN notice, so there is no worry of that.
