You're Fired!

In honor of the 12 people that were layed off at my place of work today, I'm linking to a rather timely Gawker entry (posted today!) about why (besides the current economic depression, duh) so many people are getting the axe these days. Did you know that 533,000 Americans lost their jobs last month? That is staggering. I'm completely staggered.

The Cold Timing of Layoffs

I'm one of the lucky ones (today) and I'm thankful for that. Condolences to all of those less fortunate.
