Are there layoffs in your future?


The Gravy Train Is Slowing Down

In 1998 U.S. companies announced the layoff of 677,795 workers. The workforce reductions set a record thus far for the decade. The figure for December alone, which was double the November layoff number (51,642) and 77% larger than for December 1997 (58, 293), may give a bitter taste of things to come.

Note: all figures are based on announced layoffs
