Staffing Address the following issues

1. How can PAC reduce labor costs and still save as many jobs as possible?

2. Discuss the short-term and long-term implications of downsizing. What does the research say?

3. What are your recommendations for implementing a 10 percent reduction in force? Discuss possible discrimination issues that may occur in downsizing.
