TBogg Eye for the Bush Boom Guy

From Holden:

TBogg joins in on the search for My Bush Boom but he is thwarted by ever-increasing lay-offs:

US employers announced plans in November to step up job cuts, with the total exceeding 100,000 for the third month in a row, an industry survey showed

Employers posted 104,530 cuts in November, up 2.6 percent from the previous month, according to a survey sponsored by international outplacement firm Challenger, Gray and Christmas.

Government workers were hardest hit, with 21,971 cuts, followed by telecommunications workers, with 21,158 job losses.

“Not only are more companies announcing job cuts, there are more jobs being eliminated in each announcement,” said the outplacement firm’s chief executive, John Challenger.

“This volatility could continue into 2005 as competition forces more companies to consider strategic combinations,” he said in a statement.
