Village Voice Puts Its Non-Existent Money Where Its Mouth Is

Village Voice Media is running out of cash, fast. Even though it's been over a year since they turned their weekly alt-paper into a slighty smaller weekly alt-paper, and fired a bunch of their bigger-named journos, the Voice, once such a staple of counter-culture in New York, is now left trying to scrounge up enough cash to pay anybody, anybody at all. So editors and senior managers are all taking a 10-15& pay cut, which is unfortunate but basically a good business plan if they don't want to be left holding the accountability bag when all the associate writers and "permalancers" (or whatever they're calling the slave labor) start picketing.

The Voice used to be great when it had some balls; but after the Bush win in 2000 it went lame and now it totally stinks and no one cares about it no more. Good bye and good luck ol buddy.
