Well, you have to look on the positive side and these temporary lay-offs are better than permanent ones I suppose. The company has tried to make the down-times coincide with when people usually took their holidays anyway. They say that 500 of the 800 employees will be affected. I feel for those folks - they earn good money but they'll still feel that 25% cut in their salaries this year as much as anyone would.
