New Herald owners take over tomorrow; workers being laid off asked not to steal stuff on their way out

Dan Kennedy posts the memo from a manager with the Purcell regime to staffers about what happens at midnight tonight; Kennedy adds one of those not making the transition to Digital First Media is editorial-page editor Rachelle Cohen.

The Boston Business Journal reports the new owners will shift Herald printing from the Globe in Taunton to GateHouse Media in Providence.

Telling people you just laid off not to steal stuff seems like an invitation to strip the place including seeing how much copper wire you can get out of the walls.

Are they allowed to let the door hit their arse on the way out or not?

Honest players don’t.

These people are corporate scum capable of anything and assume the same about everyone else.

That memo is kind of chilling. Even if you're continuing with the new org it isn't particularly re-assuring.

Is me or does it seem like corporations are treating their office furniture better than the workers.

Sometimes the survivors have it worse.

Is he retained? Probably. He's a cash cow in more ways than one.
