The Kansas City Star expects to lay off 150 employees as its parent company, the McClatchy Co., looks to shed about 1,600 full-time jobs.

The cuts represent about 15 percent of the Star's work force and corresponds with a 15 percent reduction McClatchy announced Monday.

The company also reports its employees wages will be reduced between 5 to 10%, depending on what they make.

McClatchy said the layoffs will begin by the end of March.
