A survey conducted by the Nishinippon Shimbun of the 20 leading companies in the Kyushu region shows that seven, or 35%, plan to cut new hires in FY 2009 by at least 10% from the totals this fiscal year. Those companies that had been actively seeking new employees are concerned about rapidly deteriorating economic conditions. Only two companies plan to hire at least 10% more new employees than they did this year.
