The Chicago Tribune is feeling the effects of the tough economy. The newspaper has notified employees that several members of its newsroom staff will be off the job by the end of the week. The Associated Press obtained an internal memo sent to employees. It did not specify the number of layoffs or who was leaving.

The newspaper cut 80 jobs less than four months ago -- representing 14 percent of the newsroom staff.
