I look at it this way... if you have a company who is spending more than they're taking in and they're headed down the road to bankruptcy, it would be better to cut, say, 500 jobs to help get the company back to it's correct size and save 2,000 jobs than to have the company shut down and lose all 2,500 jobs.
