The DuPont Co., the state’s (Delaware’s) largest industrial employer, today asked salaried employees worldwide to take unpaid furloughs this year in response to weak market conditions.

DuPont’s 75 senior leaders have agreed to take three weeks off without pay, said Anthony Farina, company spokesman. Other salaried employees are being asked to take the equivalent of two weeks off without pay.

If there is a bright side, it is that DuPont is starting at the top, with the persons who are paid the most, rather than with the persons who are paid the least.

Aside: DuPont was once Delaware’s largest employer, not just the largest “industrial” employer. These days, the largest employers are zombie banks. The way the zombie banking industry is going, DuPont may some day again–oh, never mind.
