If layoffs were to happen in the industry, who does it usually affect first? Jr positions? CDs? Random positions?

CD’s usually get hit first. They’re expensive and there’s usually an ECD above them who can step in for a short time. For what it’s worth, I don’t think the industry should panic yet. Scopes were already signed for 2020 back in February and this could theoretically start to taper off this summer. If it drags out past June, then we can all start freaking out.
