    Jobless claims unexpectedly rise last week
    Thu Apr 14, 2011 - New U.S. claims for unemployment benefits unexpectedly rose last week, bouncing back above the key 400,000 level, a government report showed on Thursday. U.S. core producer prices rose slightly faster than expected in March and the increase from a year ago was the largest since August 2009, pointing to a broadening in pipeline inflation pressures.

    This quarter a good number of people were fired from my department. Basically because a merger is about to happen and companies have to decided to continue to show profit by eliminating positions and pile the work on the people left. They aren't hurting..and if things get tight..they go with consultants. Some time ago I pointed out that eventually all labor will be consultants..if conservatives get their way.

    So far..so good.

    Workers are expendable.

    Our entire economy is based on that theory.

    Uh huh. My co. had a similar bloodbath in April 09, moi took it in the shorts. 9 people from a grp. Of 20, vaporized…sux. BUT that’s the game. I m not promised a job by anyone, I was there 15 years,a good run, and that’s life. Suck it up.

    AND, no-one from the gov. called my dept. manger and offered any help, ‘hey keep Trajan and some of those folks on, we’ll pick up the tab’….hey wtf? :lol:
