Do we need one of these @ Core77?

Layoff-o-meter:

…in the advertising industry.

One of these for the design world might help us understand how bad it REALLY is out there.

Having been in the advertising biz before ID, I can tell you, getting laid off is as common as being told to make the logo bigger. Yeah it sux even more now, but even during the swingin’ 90’s you could get a pink slip at any moment. Usually when a brand switches ad agencies.

I know of one person laid off, so the count can start there… with 1.

It may just be what I’ve seen, but it seems that design based companies and design firms are still hiring now?
