When we take into consideration that another question dealt with the total number of employees in these companies, we found that the 36% laid-off number grows in significance.
Just about 54 percent of respondents stated they work for companies of less than 20 people; 14 percent work at companies of 21 to 50 people; and the remaining 32 percent work for companies with greater than 50 employees.
I imagine that the majority of the 36 percent of companies that have laid off employees in the past six months comes from the over-50-employees group, but this is simply an assumption on my part—a brilliant assumption and one coming from the critical-thinking and logical progression found singularly to be believed by myself. Hey, I could run a survey on that. I’m talking about a survey regarding which company groups have a higher percentage of the total percentage of layoffs, not the assumptions that I am a critical thinker. I need no survey to understand your answer to the latter issue.
