Lesson in simple arithmetic needed
Quote According to Silicon Alley Insider the figure will be about one in five employees which is about half a decimation. [A decimation is what they used to do to Roman legionaries when they had misbehaved. It involved killing one in ten soldiers chosen by lot. Ed]

Nope, that's a double decimation, i.e. one decimation followed by another.
(and if you're a really pedantic mathematician like me that's actually a 19% reduction)
