The Layoff

This is always a very tough decision for a company.  When a company is thinking about laying off people, in my opinion, they should have exhausted all other options first.  In the case of Astrico Holdings, I do not think that they have considered and exhausted all of their options.  The statement that 10% of the workforce must go, Who goes, and who stays is a statement that was said without much thought.  It seems to me that it just makes since because it is an easy way to make the numbers work.  He jumped to the conclusion to fast that people need to be laid off.  After reading the article it sounds like the people surrounding him are all against a lay-off.  They all have ideas, other than lay-offs, that seem to be feasible; if anything they need to at least talk about it.
