Marguerite: Please share the recipe for your success where people thanked
you (see below) during a layoff. I think that's valuable information for the

Subject: RE: New TECHWR-L Poll Question
Been laid off three times in my tech writing/computer industry career, and
I've had to lay people off twice. Not pleasant either way, but in one
layoff, the people actually thanked me for the way we handled it.
