Globe: La-Z-Boy cuts jobs

Firings at Neosho's La-Z-Boy plant are covered by reporter Andy Ostmeyer in an article in today's Joplin Globe.

Of course, the Neosho Daily News had this story several days ago and already filed an update before the Globe story made it to print and online.

Now didn't I hear something about the Joplin Globe firing employees? Since the La-Z-Boy story indicates only 12 people will actually lose their jobs (other positions are being eliminated through attrition or not filling current openings), it makes you wonder why Globe editors thought the story was even worth putting in print.

After all, it was just a couple of weeks ago that a Joplin company fired at least 15 people and not one word about it reached the pages of the Globe. Of course, when it comes to the Joplin Globe, if it happens to anyone else it's news.

If it happens to the Globe, it's none of your business.
