  •  I'm sure it did. (0+ / 0-)

    Employers are being pretty nasty nowadays. And grey hair means higher potential healthcare costs and benefit expectations I guess.

    I know from talking to some corporate insiders that not all of it is necessary either, and many companies are going beyond where they really need to and using the economy as an excuse to purge their staff of people with benefits. Of course they'll just replace those people with independent contractors or young people who have been terrorized into accepting jobs with no benefits whatsoever.

    I'm very unhappy with corporate America and their unpatriotic reaction to this crisis.

      •  Hey, more and more that's what this world will (0+ / 0-)

        be about. Surrounding yourself with people who share your values, irrespective of the geographic location.

        I don't blame you in the slightest. Obama is great, but as we all see, he's not going to miraculously change the fundamental anti-worker character of the people in this country, especially the wealthy employers who tend to be Republicans.

          •  They're just jealous they didn't have the guts (0+ / 0-)

            to go for broke and make the move. And if not and they actually believe in that traitor nonsense... who cares, right?

            G'luck.
