This is a good find, really practical advice for businesses to stay in business pand survive.
Governments could probably do the same...
Excellent article - also enjoyed the comments (words to the wise employees) Thanks for providing the link!
Good find and that is a great website.
Good article. Thanks
Being proactive is better than reactive; more choices. But reacting (limited choices) is better than stagnation( rollover your history)

There's some good advice in there, although I'm already doing most of the stuff they've suggested.
awesome find thanks dwot.
Good article - the best part I think is the focus on staying in control (keeping good people by maintaining their hours (income) rather than random attrition by cutting hours across the board).
I think I saw this posted as a blog on CAPS. Either way, good information. Being fair means that you look out for your better employees.
I actually have been in this situation as an employee. The owner cut everyone's hours at first, leaving the two best of us to work when he was there (so that he could run his other business while we ran the main one). There were three of us (out of about 20) that did much more than our jobs. I was the second to leave. My breaking point was when he told me that he would be cutting my hours, but I would be running the business during the hours I was there. He was going to be working at home on his other business and I was not to call him. My salary was not a working wage and I had no benefits because my hours had been cut to 25 per week. He got to keep everyone that way.
Mary, been there on seeing my wages cut as well. You got me thinking... I have had my wages go down many times, through wage cuts, business going out of business and trying to find something else, hours being irregular... I quickly counted 7 times in my life where I've had my income go down, so could be more.
