A Change (Of Jobs) Is Gonna Come For Some Clear Channel Employees

While Twitter explodes with “OMG INAUGURAL” posts, Clear Channel radio employees are waiting for the axe to fall; the company’s new owners plan to shed seven percent of the workforce today. The timing apparently was no coincidence, as the New York Post reported that the company is trying to “slip in the layoffs while the press is preoccupied with Inauguration Day festivities.” I suppose there’s an element to working at Clear Channel in which any sort of dastardly act by management would be no surprise, but something about this particular machination seems particularly gross.
