Don't really know whether Newsfield's staff turnover was really any higher than other publishers.
Though wages were crap I don't think it was entirely out of meaness. Don't know for certain but I don't think there were oodles of cash going about. Certainly the directors didn't appear to have lavish lifestyles. Also bear in mind for a lot of the staff it was their first job and they were joining with no publishing history. Some reviewers work was very heavily subbed.
