Have you noticed? Within the last two months, many companies have announced huge layoffs.
My question is this Â- are these late layoffs a direct result of a bad economy? Or, is this just normal practice with companies so they can pay their investors in January 2005? How will these layoffs impact our current economic conditions? And will these late layoffs paint a "skewed" picture of our real economic situation?
Because from what IÂm hearing now -- they say our economy is doing well, and expect to do even better in 2005. But how can that be if companies are having massive layoffs?
I honestly donÂt remember that many company layoffs in 2003, for the 4th quarter.
