1. Surely this can't come as any surprise to them.
They shouldn't even have to think about it very long to realize that when people are laid off jobs in mass, people stop spending in mass. Seems pretty simple to me.

As I see it, their choices are to find new markets/products to sell to, or go out of business, or start hiring people.
