Tronc, formerly called the newspaper publishing company Tribune, has laid off 144 IT workers.
“IT services are being outsourced to India and Philippines,” said Tronc, in its application for Trade Adjustment Assistance benefits for these displaced workers. The company hired India-based Tata Consultancy Services, an India-based IT services firm.
Reporters, but more likely the editorial writers at Tronc publications, which include Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times, Orlando Sentinel, may feel reluctant to write editorials or stories about other businesses offshoring their jobs.
I can’t recall Tronc publications writing about their own offshoring of IT jobs. What’s the point of reporting on other businesses offshoring jobs if you aren’t reporting that your own business is doing the same?

We wonder why our newspapers do not tell the stories of Displaced Americans?
Here is a prime example, and as they are silenced one by one, less and less will be told.
Who is our Champion that will tell these stories and work tirelessly to end the destruction of our nation by those willing to send jobs to other countries and import non-immigrant guest workers to take the remaining jobs leaving Americans homeless and destitute?
