Sub editors sacrificed

From Media Guardian:

"Archant has confirmed to staff that it will employ 10 advertising designers to lay out pages" commented Stuart McCreery, the managing director at Archant Suffolk.
Advertising designers are not trained to sub edit pages of editorial content and are not journalists (the clue is in their job title), who are Archant trying to fool here? Financial saving wins over editorial quality.
"Staff are now applying for positions within the new structure and the next phase of the project is to ensure that those with the right skills are appointed to the appropriate roles," he added.

Like sub editors?
