I saw this thread title and thought: "So ATS is giving some mods the pink slip? That's a first! They finally priced themselves out of a job."

Seriously, good thread. And I'm sure many dozens of small businesses aren't even among the list.

You are SO right. I can count 5 businesses in my area in the last month that have closed their doors...

Small business employers will tell you - there is another area of impact that doesn't get near the ink as an actual layoff - cuts in hours. Many low and moderate income people and families work hourly and generally somewhere under 40 hours a week. Those hours - for many - are getting cut and cut hard.

A worker who normally counted on 35 to 40 hours a week - most of the time with no benefits to speak of - is now hoping and praying they get in 30 or even 20 hours a week. They are the walking wounded in this economy...and they are dropping to their knees.

Minimum wage goes up in July. If there isn't more money to go around...we can do the math as to what that means for the hourly worker.

Your thread is appreciated and a noble effort. Those numbers - those people - matter.

Does it mean that the recession is over when the Chicago Tribune laid off its recession reporter, coz there is not much to report on? The traders interpreted it that way and the Dow climbed 120 points.

spink, you better start manipulating your list. I'm an unemployed Armageddon reporter -- youknowwhatimean.

An interesting note from the editor of LAYOFF DAILY -

Note from the editor: education layoffs accelerate, pass 16,000 in 2 weeks

As state and local goverments attempt to cover the massive revenue shortfalls due to the recession, it looks like education is getting slashed especially hard.

A quick tally of reported education-related cuts mumbers over 16,000 in the last two weeks alone. This is in addition to the following money-saving proposals I've seen floated in the same period: - School closures - Increased classroom sizes - Movement to 4-day class weeks - Elimination of teacher's aides - Suspension of statewide performance exams - Elimination of sports and music programs As our educational system continues to fall behind in the world rankings, we're dying a slow death from a thousand tiny cuts.

When Norway and South Korea are beating us on the scientific literacy front and the Czechs are running circles around our students in math, it's time to wake up. No offense, of course, to the fine folks in those countries.
We have to do better than this.

Here's a good lay off!

Radical left-wing cartoonist Ted Rall [0] -- who reveled in dismissing American servicemen as "idiots" [0] -- was recently laid off [1]. Editor & Publisher reported the story in an April 22 article:

NEW YORK Chalk up one more wildly talented cartoonist to be victimized by the economy.

“I’ve been laid off,” reads the headline on the blog of cartoonist Ted Rall, president of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists. Rall, an editorial cartoonist for Universal Press Syndicate, has served as editor of acquisitions and development at United Media for the past two years.

Always a silver lining! Karma is such a great thing. I bet this socialist wishes that we still had a healthy capitalist economy.

Swine flu epidemic fear grows, world on alert

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Governments around the world rushed on Sunday to check the spread of a new type of swine flu that has killed up to 81 people in Mexico and infected around a dozen in the United States.

Mexicans huddled in their homes while U.S. hospitals tracked patients with flu symptoms and other countries imposed health checks at airports as the World Health Organization warned the virus had the potential to become a pandemic.

The epidemic has snowballed into a monster headache for Mexico, already grappling with a violent drug war and economic slowdown, and has quickly become one of the biggest global health scares in years.
