Sadly cost cutting continues in the media industry, with News Corp reportedly set to make 70 photographers in Australia redundant.

Will this be the end of it? Sadly, it seems, it won’t be, with News Corp rumoured to be targeting target production staff, including subeditors and designers, next.

It seems News Corp is not the only newspaper company cutting costs. Fairfax Media journalists went on strike for seven days this month after the company announced it was cutting 125 journalists on the Sydney Morning Herald and the Age newspapers.

We expect many organisations to be conducting redundancy programs at the moment – most of them hoping to keep out of the public eye. It’s just that time of year – organisations often make these decisions so that retrenchments coincide with the end of the financial year.
