Work is preferably done by machines in order to save time, energy and resources. That scenario ended up with job-cuts for the people of the corporation. Most of the layoffs were in the field like sales, customer service area and editorial.

Living Social relocate some of the employees to Tuscon in order to create some vacancies in that place.

Now it’s the crucial problem for the economy of the nation. If steps are not to be taken for eradication of the problem the whole corporate world will face a serious fiscal crisis.

The profit making companies are not able to understand the depth of the matter of layoff, which is a growing problem of the age. It harms the nation in two ways.
