Newhouses praised for Star-Ledger cuts

The Star-Ledger in New Jersey ispraised for how upcoming pay cuts were determined. David Cay Johnson, in a post on Poynter, liked that the % cut varied by amount earned. That doesn't please a reporter who suggested the loyal, longtime staff suffer more under the plan.

Johnson, who added up the newly required copays for health coverage, suggested the news staff might start paying closer attention to paying for health care on the news pages as staff members start shelling out more for their own care.
