The local media will NOT report on the disaster NM has become. NM writes the articles and gives them to the Milwaukee Journal to print. That's the way journalism works in Milwaukee these days.
They aren't lay-off's. It's a RIF (reduction-in-force) so they can hire new, younger, cheaper, less experienced workers or more tech savvy if you want to believe NM leadership.
These RIF's actually started about 4 years ago when they let the mutual fund accounting department go. They were more entry level and younger employee's which masked the ageism that followed.
I have heard that they stopped giving 'packages' to employees they terminated. Can anyone confirm this?
