It’s not charity. It’s what’s right.

Years ago, The Star made a promise to its employees: If we must resort

to layoffs, or if we feel like you’re no longer up to the job, we’ll provide

a modest severance to make the transition easier. It wasn’t much, but it

recognized that workers are people.

It recognized loyalty.

Now, The Star wants to break that promise. It wants to drastically reduce

severance for veteran workers — people who have given decades of their

lives to The Star. And The Star wants to forget decades of good work –

and eliminate the severance – for a worker who has one bad year.

Why the change of heart?

Because The Star wants to make it cheaper to lay people off. Because

The Star wants to make it cheaper to get rid of veteran workers. Worst of

all, because The Star says severance is charity. It says The Star is no longer

a charitable organization.

When did keeping your promise become charity?

It’s not charity.

It’s what’s right.
