Have any of the Action sport companies laid employees off due to the economy?

Of course it has. Here's something in recent news -

Now, it could be said that this was due to VF's acquisition of DC and I'm sure it was partly due to that, but I'm also very sure that the economy had a large part too.

There's more to follow, I guarantee it. All these large corporate execs might like their ASI companies so that their kids look cool, but when the time comes they'll have no problem cutting off the fat, no problem at all.
