Mailbag: Surviving the Economy
After Sun announced that it plans to lay
off up to 6,000 employees
over the next year, Doug asked readers what their
own companies are doing to deal with the economy:
I work for a company in the transportation industry, which is already
getting hit due to the high cost of aircraft fuel. We've taken the path of
a hiring freeze and a budget freeze. We've also pushed all IT software purchasing
and projects back to 2010. Only essential purchases/projects are allowed.
