Looking over the headlines during lunch was depressing..

GM to lay off 2,000 workers
Caterpillar to slash 20,000 jobs
Home depot to cut 7,000 jobs
Pfizer to buy Wyeth and get rid of 8,000 jobs
Sprint/Nextel to eliminate 8,000 jobs

Not sure yet. I know IT will get hit hard, as usual. And they said they are going after a lot of the executive leadership as well.

No way I'd ever take a job at Sprint. Way too many layoffs. They happen all the time too.

Hang in there....I'm in telecom as well and it's been ugly for quite some time now. We're in BK protection at the moment and just waiting for the Creditors to determine our fate in a few weeks.

Entrepreneurship is the way to go if you have the start up capital to do it.

Corporate America can go fuck themselves.

Yeah most people on here have 50K- 100K lose in a startup. Good idea.

50K jobs lost today alone. 760,000 this month so far.

Did the kid ever get anything worse than a C after this rule was implemented? Not a chance.

I'm not saying it's morally right or wrong, but does it make the child because of it? Think about that for a second.
