Re: Cuts for Christmas

If you wait until Jan/Feb, they often have a massive credit card bill from the festivities and are then told their income to pay it off is about to evaporate.

I was more thinking we should have flagged this as happening a couple of months earlier, allowing a gradual transition as they find other gigs, which would make life easier for the contractors and much easier for me and my remaining permies.

Announcing it with a 3 week hard stop is .... difficult, for everyone.
