I believe letting her go is a great opportunity for not only her but the newspaper as a whole. Im not sure the readers would react any differently than they already do. I think it might boost the confidence of other writers to want to be able to earn a trip like that for themselves. Not only to for the trip but also to better their career. I don’t think it will really affect the office morals at all. We are all adults and realize when someone earns something such as this trip to Key West it’s a motivator. Other employees will pick up their work and do better for a change to have a trip such as the travel editor. I also think that she deserves this trip not only for earning it but the fact that she is a travel editor, it suits the employed position. I’m sure the other reporters will be jealous by nature but that is completely normal. Now if they act like small children about it thats when you have a problem, but as adults they will act appropriately.
