If the auto companies go under, I am sure you will see many, many more layoffs like that.

Even if they don't, the downsizing in the auto industry is going to be mirrored (or worse) in many connected businesses.

i spoke with an insider at c-e and was told that the navy was terminating business with c-e, based upon a non-performance clause in their contract. i've seen elsewhere in trade rags that c-e is up against the ropes with many of their big accounts.
so it goes.

Did anyone else notice? Absolutely no GM advertising during the football games today and only one or two F150 ads - a ton of Toyota and Nissan ads.

This is the kind of spin-off impact that isn't on the radar of people outside the industry. When think of collateral damage to the auto industry implosion, they talk about the local diner or retailer. But there's a whole pool of professionals firmly in the middle class who are going to be taken out by the collapse of the auto industry - advertisers, finance, legal, etc. - all dependent on business from the Big 3 and all likely to be out of a job at the rate things are going.
