  •  I found an interesting story on that guy (0+ / 0-)

    Worth a read. It's short and to the point.

    •  Regardless of the real reason (0+ / 0-)

      a layoff is still a loss of income for the employees, not so much for the employer.

      The article mentions the oft-heard excuse that markets and big employers react negatively because of "uncertainty".  What does that really mean?  Uncertainty that their companies may not be able to stay profitable and meet a payroll or uncertainty that they may have to sell off one of their yachts or vacation homes in the Caymans?

      The business community isn't responding in a responsible manner, that's one reason why our economic recovery has been so slow.  This is why I think its so important for Obama and Dems in Congress to take stronger steps for government backed stimulus.   Spending some money on job creation will help the economy overcome the reluctance these mega corps are showing to invest in economic growth.
