Default No 'Jobs' Section in L.A. Times

The Jobs section has been concatenated into the Classified section, because the number of jobs available probably wouldn't even fill one sheet.

I imagine most job listings have gone online now, i.e. monster.com, etc.

Not good for the L.A. Times - or for anyone who doesn't have ready access to the Internet.

The Orange County Register has some sort of tie-in with Monster.com. I'd guess that the LA Times has something similar to the OC Register and VCS.

I hope the concern is nothing more than the fact that local newspapers are dying out. I hate to see the SF Chronicle stop publication & LA Times owners in Chicago have filed bankruptcy.

My fear however is that there are no jobs out there & companies are not hiring\ not giving raises & cutting back. I believe our nation is entering the Great Depression II

We were just talking at lunch about tech...it seems if you do not have access to the net, you are living in a different world..

The saddest story was the Rocky Mountain News who just went under after 150 years in the business

Many employers also use Craigslist since it's free.

I experienced this today! I kept thumbing through the sections, looking for it!

I grew up reading the Los Angeles Times, and now this.
