Where is the recovery? Click the link for lots more past and present info. Staples is getting hit pretty hard with 1000 layoffs pending by the end of this year. We're also seeing people being forced to train those who are taking over their jobs that are being sent overseas. Talk about a slap.

For those of us that are in the know we know there will be no recovery there is a agenda and that agenda is to take America down even if it is one job at a time .

Haliburton plans to lay off another 5,000 in addition to the 22,000 they let go last year.

Buh buh everything is awesome!!

No recovery has taken place since 2007. The rich got richer as the middle class slipped to the poverty line. If EBT and food stamps were cut we'd see long bread lines like the 1930s so basically the DEPRESSION is being covered up.

Yes, it is a depression but they won't dare admit it. Someone said the difference between a recession and depression is when your neighbor loses his job it's a recession, when you lose yours, it's a depression. So many people have lost their jobs and gone through all their unemployment insurance, they have nothing left but EBT and SNAP to live on. I was reading something last night that said helicopter money is now being considered as a way to jump start the economy. If the unemployment rate is below 5 percent (more government lies!), why would this even be a consideration? Though, the norm is to dole out small amounts of money that really doesn't help the people or the economy anyway, the big money always goes to the banks.

The politicians go on and on about jobs! but Trump is the only one with a plan to get manufacturing going in this country again. Because of cheap imports, supply exceeds demand which worked when people had disposable income and they'd buy a crap load of stuff because it was cheap. Now they're trying to unload it on Ebay of which there are thousands of similar items (example: shoes) and if you look at the completed listings, very few sales even with low starting bids. This has resulted in a glut of listings put up by people with normalcy bias that keep relisting without lowering the price failing to engage in the real market.

Ebay is still a good indicator of economic trade between individuals which is akin to the old system of barter and clearly people are pulling back while they still can or they are already living in economic hell.

Boeing to Cut More Than 4,500 Jobs

Boeing will eliminate about 4,000 jobs in its commercial airplanes division by the middle of this year and another roughly 550 jobs in a division that conducts flight and lab tests, company spokespeople told Reuters.

The planemaker will reduce 1,600 positions in the commercial airplanes division through voluntary layoffs, while the rest of the cuts are expected to be completed by leaving open positions unfilled, spokesman Doug Alder said.

"While there is no employment reduction target, the more we can control costs as a whole the less impact there will be to employment," Alder said.

The job cuts, which will include hundreds at executive and managerial positions, will not done through involuntary layoffs, Alder said.

IBM layoffs 2016

In some ways, the cuts reflect corporate America’s failure to proactively train its employees for the next technology waves. Instead, employees begin to look like commodity products with limited a limited shelf life. The problem isn’t limited to IBM. Plenty of U.S. companies — including IBM rivals like Hewlett Packard Enterprise — use “workforce rebalancing” to push aging skill sets out the door and bring fresh blood into the business.

Britain looks to avert layoffs at loss-making steel plant

LONDON (AP) - British authorities appealed for time Wednesday to save the country's biggest steel maker after parent company Tata Steel said it couldn't promise to keep plants open while it seeks a buyer.

Britain's steel industry has been hit hard by cheap Chinese imports......

Some 19,000 people are employed by Tata across 14 sites in Britain, according to Len McCluskey, leader of the Unite union.

"Tata Steel withdrawing completely from the U.K. risks destroying our entire steel industry," he said. "That would be a disaster both for those communities reliant on steel jobs and our entire industrial base."

Chicago State University says more layoffs are on the way if the school doesn't get more state funding.

The institution is reeling from a lack of money coming from Springfield. CSU has sent notices to its 900 employees, saying there will be layoffs if the school doesn't receive its state funding.

But wait, there's good news! BAE is only laying off `70 instead of the 250 originally planned. Bask in the awesomeness, people!
