But What Have You Done For Us Lately?

It seems around every Labor Day big companies announce big lay offs. Intel, Radio
Shack, and Home Depot announced big lay offs in the near future.

The timing I think probably has something to do with the calendar, rather than any thing to do with a remembrance and appreciation of this country’s labor force. I think lay-offs are probably the last surge of cost cuts to make the profits to look good.

But it sure seems ironic; the holiday that is meant to show the working man how much we appreciate him for making this country’s enterprise so strong is also the time he could get the ax.

How ironic and depressing.

Suzanne,
It is like the little line of ants climbing up my yucca plant to get the oozing nectar only to be eaten by the spider at the top.
