Re: The cuts are impacting morale

Alot depends on how the cuts are implemented. A reduction in working hours isn't too bad if you can restructure your week/month to create usable time, ie. time that you can use working for another client. The problems arise when the job's worth's managers decide that you need to be present 5 days a week for "core hours" of 10:00-16:00 in the expectation that most people will actually be onsite and thus work 9'ish to 5'ish...
