@daleste, I totally agree with your statement that "workers will be stretched to the limit to keep their jobs". I have seen this happening, people are expected to work on weekends as well. Definitely companies are trying to use this slowdown as an instrument to exploit the employees.

Yes, the corps have the leverage now. The workers will be stretched to the limit to keep their jobs. Maybe it will swing back, but maybe not...

My sense is that even a reasonably good bump in growth would not necessarily drive much increase in headcount. Most companies in this sector have learned to do more with fewer people.

This is very positive news indeed. So when do we see jobs growth in this sector ? Is the sector already in hiring spree ?
