For a glimpse of the New York Times newsroom culture and mindset, or at least a slice of it, do not miss this union-produced YouTube video of Times journalists, many of whom make upwards of $100,000 a year, complaining that Times management wants to freeze their defined benefit pension plans and transition to 401K plans. The risk-averse nature of the Times employees is striking, as is their tendency to characterize the corporate management as "them" versus "us." These folks seem to have no idea how cushy their situations are.
And if you were thinking of investing in New York Times Company stock, which, at around $6 a share, is down to a level at which it might begin to tempt some bargain hunters, watch the video first.
