More bad news at One Herald Plaza
Circulation is plummeting, jobs have been slashed, and remaining employees have had their pay cut and been ordered to take unpaid days off.
Well, Herald employees have received more bad news.
They're working with rats. Yes, RATS!
Dave Wilson, the Herald's Senior Editor for Administration recently sent out a memo advsing fifth floor newsroom employees that, "there have been several rodent sightings lately." Wilson said rats were spotted on the fifth floor near the features department.
Wilson said that building services had been notified.
But until the problem is alleviated, Wilson advises staffers to "clean out any scraps of food in and under your desks." He asked staffers to dispose of any uneaten food in trash cans located in several of the break rooms located on the fifth floor.
Random Pixels contacted one staffer for comment and got this response, "Rats? That's nothing new. We've had rats in the newsroom for years!"
Random Pixels wishes the Herald luck in eliminating newsroom rats.
And hopefully, when they've solved the rat problem, they can start on the dinosaurs!
