  1. a) Dear John, is there a way to contact you, ie email you ? I tried to search for your contact, on google, but could not find one.b) Letter to CEOs of companies:Dear Sir, In light of the current economic crisis, it will be better for companies to apply salary cuts, instead of layoffs. Such layoffs will depress the economy further, and the people who remain on board the companies will have to work harder, which will have much more toll on their body and mind. On the other hand, if there are salary cuts, not only will everyone be weather the storm, but also it will bring US salaries closer to those of other countries, and will have much more overall ameliorating effects on everyone.Best regards, AvinashPublished at :
