: Such voices -including those in the labour movement, trade unions, feminists, anti-racists, environmentalists, anti-poverty activists and other groups committed to progressive social change-are routinely characterized as representing a threat to the interests of market senitive news organizations.

: Thanks a lot.

Efficiency gains - working with lower costs to make more profit. The usual way is to employ fewer staff by making staff redundant.
