Laid-off Des Moines Register Cartoonist Strikes Back

Brian Duffy, the former editorial cartoonist at the Des Moines Register who was escorted out along with 40 other employees as part of a nation-wide lay-off program at Gannett, has had the chance to get back at his former bosses.

After the news broke that he was laid-off from his staff cartooning job of more than 25 years, Cityview publisher Shane Goodman got in touch with Duffy and offered him a full page to publish whatever he wanted.

Duffy took him up on his offer and penned the cartoon above for the December 10 issue of the central Iowa weekly newspaper.

Goodman spoke positively of the award winning cartoonist, telling WHOtv 13 that "The Register's loss is our gain."

People always hate to talk about when they are laid off. But as it has become every day's news headline since Yahoo started it with cutting 1500 of its task force last year, now a need of platform has been in demand where people can express their selves in words how they are feeling about their company, whey the got laid off was that justified or not.
And every thing they want to tell anonymously.And is providing you that platform.
