    That a pretty big pay cut, but it is understandable. I mean at least they are still keeping their jobs; I would rather have a pay cut then have no job at all. Although, in this economy they are going to have to live with the cuts ad possibly more as the economy keeps tumbling downwards.

    That’s not too bad. I makes perfect since to cut back because consider how the US economy is doing right now. I believe eventually these companies that are downsizing will be returning to their former status. It’s just going to take time.
