If you cut back to three or four hard copies a week, you will have to reduce the subscription rate. Which would result in less income. Would the employees be willing to take a comparable salary reduction?

I think there are two options:
1. Employees would have to take a pay cut, or
2. The workforce would need to be thinned to meet the new criteria.

I do not know or pretend to know the inner-workings of the newspaper industry. I imagine they are in the same position as every other business. Cut cost or explore different avenues. I just think people expect a lot for a very small price. It can't work that way. Would you, or any customer, be willing to pay two to three times the current rate for the paper if it meant getting better coverage? Would you pay $5 a day to get your paper? Of course not. Wages keep going up. The PG is being killed by union contracts and benefits. If you can't get your customers to foot the bill, you need to cut cost.
