Per the Soda-banning mayor’s financial website, GameStop will be closing 200 non-performing outlets by next year. Yep, things are looking up now (sarcasm).

Is there a running total of mass layoffs since the election ? Probably close to 60,000. Panasonic isn’t happening until March so employees are at least on 5 mos notice and the jobs will not be all (or even most) in America.

The American public has to be really stupid to think that we are in recovery. Maybe if they read something besides the mainstream media, they would know what’s happening.

50% of the workforce at Deltek. They have decided to outsource the whole company to the Phillipines. Guess what this company does—does payroll and conducts market research on federal procurements for govt contractors. SERIOUSLY.

No one I know is convinced there's a recovery going on! Perhaps some of these P&G workers voted confidently for that media-hyped recovery?

Procter & Gamble Plans More Job Cuts, Boosts Buyback Program 50%

Snip: Procter & Gamble Co. (PG) announced plans to possibly cut more than twice as many nonmanufacturing jobs than it had already planned, a further sign that it is heeding analyst and investor criticism over its bloated cost structure.

“possible: 18,000 from Hostess”

Talked to my son last night in CA. He doesn’t know if today will be his last day at Hostess (after 17 years).

The drivers spent the day loading up their trucks with enough goodies for a few more days to run their routes.

They were already forced to take a $150.00 per week pay cut a couple of weeks ago just to keep working.

Snip

The Teamsters meanwhile are urging the smaller union to hold a secret ballot on whether to continue striking. Citing its financial experts who had access to the company’s books, the Teamsters say that Hostess’ warning of liquidation is “not an empty threat or a negotiating tactic” but a certain outcome if workers continue striking.

Deadline was 5:00pm today. Hostess decision tomorrow.

Something about Hmmm. Wake Forest Baptist medical center last night? LOTS. 8100? just remember the headline as I read the scroll shaking my head at all the job losses.

Well, Obama asked them to hold off their layoff numbers til after the election so they did apparently.
