Mercury News designer Martin Gee has posted a photo documentary at flickr.com showing the effects of layoffs and downsizing. Gee writes:
- the last round of layoffs and buyouts really hurt me. i mean, each one does but this one especially. this place feels like a morgue. an abusive relationship. remnants everywhere. empty cubicles. empty chairs. abandoned office equipment. goodbye emails. besides looking for a new job and building a massive assemblage, this is a way for me to deal.
there will be more photos…
At left is the door to Rich Ramirez’s office. Ramirez, 44, committed suicide June 20, 2007 during a previous round of layoffs.
