Mailbag: Surviving the Economy

After Sun announced that it plans to lay off up to 6,000 employees over the next year, Doug asked readers what their own companies are doing to deal with the economy:

I work for a company in the transportation industry, which is already getting hit due to the high cost of aircraft fuel. We've taken the path of a hiring freeze and a budget freeze. We've also pushed all IT software purchasing and projects back to 2010. Only essential purchases/projects are allowed.
