USA Today announces furloughs, extends wage freeze

Gannett Blog
A memo to USA Today staff says: "All employees will be furloughed for one full week during the time period of Sunday, February 28 through Saturday, July 3, 2010. ... That means when you are on furlough, there is no work, no office phone calls, no voice mail, no e-mail and no PDA checking." The memo adds: "The one year moratorium on pay increases which went into effect on February 1, 2009, will be extended for a minimum of an additional 90 days."
