Business and Workers

January 13, 1994

* In response to Harry Bernstein's Column Left, "It's a Fine Line Between Profit and Greed, " Jan. 2:

Sooner or later, all of the companies that boost profits by laying off workers will have to pay the piper. Laid-off employees have little or no discretionary income with which to purchase goods and services; without jobs, people cannot help keep businesses alive. The lack of the "little guy's" spending dollar will eventually sink all businesses, save the grocer and the funeral director.

This downward spiral ultimately hurts all, even businesses that feel temporarily immune. Employers should remember this.
