Doesn't NC have some of the weakest immigration laws in the south? No ID needed to get a drivers liscense and you can register to vote at the same time.

Its amazing how many NC construction trucks are in SC. Most have non-Caucasian and Non African American drivers..

Is that PC enough...

I'm sure it's not Bush's fault. However, I'm sure democrats will love to see the same data during Bush's years in the House.

I work for the largest health care provider in the country..

With O's relection and ObamaCare full speed ahead you guessed it.

We had a call today...they laid off a lot of middle management; based on our entire workforce size we slashed about 17%. Most are leaving on good terms and are being given two weeks to close out projects and hand stuff off. there was one melt down I know of...I'm sure the rest are thinking 1) reference 2) there is always a chance something else might open up internally

And of course in stride the VP told those of us left need to figure out ways to get more efficient; she also mentioned the fact we are all salary and this means you don't work a 40 hour week. I haven't in years but still.

This weekend seems like a great time to polish up the resume.

So... everyone is to suppose that the closings listed are due to the squatter being re-elected? Personally, I hope that is the case. But saying so doesn't make it so.

No it's not the fault of Obama, how can he be blamed? He won't be sworn in 'till after the first of the year. If anyone should get the blame it's the guy who didn't do anything positive in the last four-years.

Ah yes, but welfare has no layoffs nor unemployment so that's one place we don't have to worry about losses.

Maybe we all ought to quit our jobs, close businesses, go on welfare and let Nobummer take care of us. I could use a permanent vacation, paid healthcare, housing subsidy, food, a new car, gold and diamond jewelry, tat's, child care, etc.

The store I work at is adding 1-2 positions...so they can cut all part timers from 32 hours to 24. From the owner's mouth, because of Obama's reelection ensuring that his policies take effect.

That's because you don't understand the slightest thing about running a business.

What are you kidding?

Every employee is now a huge liability. I do not envy business owners with what they now have to go thru with ZeroCare.

When we were free employees were assets.

Can't wait to see the employment statistics over the next few months. Between the "adjustment" that needs to be made from the bogus numbers last month and the new layoffs, they ain't gonna be pretty.
