  1. Work-Sharing May Help Companies Avoid Layoffs, by Stephen Greenhouse, 6/15 NYTimes.com
    BERLIN, Conn. — As companies struggle to make it from recession to recovery, many are turning to a novel but unheralded program that cuts their costs while sparing their workers’ jobs.

This encourages firms to use across-the-board reductions of hours instead of layoffs... The economic argument in favor of such a policy is powerful... - see whole article under today's date.
