Odds of being laid off?

If HP has over 50,000 employees and plans on laying off 6,000 isn’t that only around 10% of the workforce being laid off or about 1 person laid off for every 10 people employed at the company? If this is true then doesn’t that mean that most of us... —  read more

It seems that HP must give employees 60 days notice under the Warn Notice or pay them for 60 days in lieu of. Please comment if you have information to the contrary.
