Announce a hiring freeze - 4
It has become necessary to announce a hiring freeze at Chris Corporation. We expect this situation to be temporary; however, until further notice, no new personnel can be hired. As you know, consumer spending was slow during the last quarter; however, recent reports indicate that the fourth quarter will be better than average. We are willing to discuss any special circumstances that arise and make adjustments as needed. We appreciate the support and cooperation of all our employees and hope the situation will return to normal soon.
