>Dell gives workers unpaid leave

6:40 PM


Dell employees received a memo from founder and CEO Michael Dell recently asking them to take some time off without pay.

It's not meant to be punitive, but rather a measure to help the Round Rock, Texas, company save some money as the economy continues on its uncertain path. The request made to employees is also an effort to avoid possible layoffs, according to a report in the Austin Business Journal.


That's pretty decent of Dell. No, I'm not being sarcastic. Considering that the other option was laying people off, I think they took the high road by simply requesting they take an unpaid vacation. At least they're not losing their jobs completely. Of course, if the economy keeps on heading the way it is, that may turn out to be useless, heh.
