On Monday, the Times Company closed its wholesale distributor, which would mean a job loss of some 550 people, and today the Boston Globe reports that the Times Company is closing one of the Globe‘s printing plants. “The Boston Globe said yesterday that the newspaper plans to shutter its Billerica printing plant by 2010, affecting as many as 200 employees who work at the site. The paper plans to keep its main printing plant in Dorchester.”
As tough as it is for reporters, what about the distributors? That’s 750 people fired in five days.
