As part of a consolidation by its parent company, New Jersey newspaper The Star-Ledger will see its workforce take a deep cut.
The new Star-Ledger layoffs affect 167 workers. Roughly a quarter of the newspaper’s staff will lose their jobs in the current Star-Ledger layoffs, according to USA TODAY.
All of the staff cut during the Star-Ledger layoffs are non-union workers. The Star-Ledger employs about 750 workers, of which approximately 500 are not union members.
The new round of Star-Ledger layoffs follow 34 job cuts at the newspaper in January 2013. The Star-Ledger is the largest daily newspaper in the Garden State.
