Some of these companies haven't learned from experience. There should be other ways to save money,jobs and the economy.
Job sharing?
Reduce hours Monday through Thursday?
Reduce overtime.
Reduce expense reports.
Reduce workers Comp.
Ask employees to chip in and brainstorm for new ideas.
Hi tech execs-you'll be hiring some workers this year-some of your ex-employees may not return-they may be working in another industry using the skills you taught them.
Or you'll be training some new people-in other words you'll be starting over and paying recruiter's vacations and their kids college tuition.

Is "too much screen time" really a problem?
Yes -- smartphone addiction is ruining relationships.
Yes -- but primarily due to parents' failure to regulate kids' use.
Possibly -- long-term effects on health are not yet known.
Not really -- lack of self-discipline and good judgement are the problems.
No -- angst over "screen time" is just the latest overreaction to technology.
No -- what matters is the quality of content, not the time spent viewing it.
