RAWALPINDI – The Jang Group continued to cut jobs as it terminated eight staffers on Saturday.
Those sacked worked in the marketing department, a JournalismPakistan.com source says.
More layoffs are expected in the days ahead despite protests by journalist unions.
Last week, the media group laid-off hundreds of employees from different cities, with 150 shown the door in Rawalpindi alone.
Of the 150, eight worked for The News and the rest for Jang.
The group also shut down some of its publications including Waqt, Inqilab, Awam, Daily News, and Jang Peshawar and Faisalabad.
