Unless this topic takes a drastic turn into the original question...

Original Question : How will it effect me?

Well, I will have to find out who is being fired or replaced. And then update my website and emails within my query service manually to effect those changes.

Maybe some of the laid off agents will become managers and thus create a whole bunch more people for us to query....

Frank, you're the best with that whole analysis/advice thing. I've been a lurker till recently. Thanks.

WMA would be analyzing all of their agents earnings and workloads, and some people are bound to be let go, as they are in every major.

As for those who stay, it depends also on how they like WMA's management. If they like WMA, and it works out for them, they'll stay. If not, some of them will break away to form their own management companies, and/or boutique agencies. I'm sure WMA's rivals CAA and ICM will also look for any sign of discontent, because a poorly executed major is the perfect time for your rivals to take advantage and even poach employees and clients from you.
