An interesting development. Note that some of the reporters who've signed their names to this open later have, in the past, been hostile to Occupy Wall Street and the student protests against tuition hikes.
But now, they themselves are seeing austerity first hand, in their own workplace. One can only hope that this might cause them to take another look at the world around them. It seems as if their experience is already causing them to do so.
From the letter, signed by (so far) 586 reporters, editors and other staff:
"All of us who work at the Times deserve to have a secured retirement; this should not be a privilege cynically reserved to senior management."
