Companies That Are NOT Laying Off Workers

Three cheers for Costco. From CNBC:

Costco Wholesale’s profit is down 27 percent year-over-year, but the discount store has not laid anyone off, choosing instead to freeze hiring at its corporate offices. The only workers let go have been holiday seasonal hires.

The company says it recognizes that labor remains its most valuable — if costliest — resource.

And Wynn and Equifax, and whoever else. Someone (maybe me) should make a list of companies that have avoided layoffs despite the economy so people know who to give their business to. I encourage everyone to patronize these companies (even if their motive is strictly financial). After all, it is a disgraceful act to layoff workers at a profitable company (which many have done).
