Everybody Out of the Pool!

Note to Wall Street Journal staffers: Don’t overstay your Hamptons summer share!

As the Journal readies the Weekend Edition for its September 17 launch, Journal staffers already smarting over increased workload, shorter filing deadlines and overtime pay are now finding themselves in a vacation blackout.

In a staff meeting held earlier today in the 10th floor conference room, Money and Investing editor Dave Kansas informed about 20 Money and Investing staffers that no vacations will be allowed from September 1 through September 17 in preparation for the launch, according to a Journal source familiar with the meeting.

“They want everyone around for those two weeks before the launch,” the source said.
