Offer Data to Support the Concept: "For instance, during 1995 and 1996m AT&T, IBM, and General Motors, each laid off more than 50,000 workers" (p. 243, second sentence, footnoted to an article from the "popular press."

Refute that Concept: "While the public may have formed an exaggerated view of overall trends based on such highly publicized and dramatic layoffs" (p. 243, third sentence, first clause)

Agree with the Concept: "the economywide evidence does indicate that layoffs have increased. Table 8.5 gives data on the job displacement rate, that is, the number of workers who left a firm due to a shift or position being abolished, slack work conditions, or a plant closing as a percentage of the total employed." (p. 243, conclusion of argument.)
