AOL employees are in the same boat with the rest of America when it comes to layoffs and downsizing. A full third of all AOL full-time employees, or about 2,300 workers, will be looking for new gigs by the end of the first quarter of 2010, after the large number of pink slips distributed this week.
Me? I'm just a humble blogger, an independent contractor whose duty it is to create content, and is paid by the piece. Working from home, I cost the company very little, so I just put my head down and write. But it's the full-time AOL employees who have been biting their nails for the past couple of months, wondering if their jobs were on the line.
