Well, it's sad news for the employees - I've been laid off in staff reductions too. But it may be good news for Ilford. I don't know any of thier financial data, but generally, being able to reduce costs in part by reducing staff when in an earnings downturn is good for the company in the long run. While all of you socialists (ha!) on this forum may not like it, our having Ilford around does depend on it being a profitable company.
