What about jobs these days
« on: February 19, 2009, 11:08:22 am »
I hope this helps the economy because everyone needs it, but will the companys start hiring again or will they continue to lay people off and keep the money for themselves.

My mean-spirited side is coming out when I say this.. but I think the layoffs are going to continue no matter what happens. You really think these companies and such getting our billions of dollars are really going to have it trickle down to the little guys? NO.

That money is going to line their pockets as they shutdown more positions. Then they'll move them overseas and/or force that extra work onto the workers they actually keep. They're reducing the cost while getting our tax money - but striking the economy even harder by getting rid of jobs.

Remember the first bailout for the banks? That money was supposed to help loosen the credit lines. Did it? Not a chance. In fact, banks and other companies (like Capital One) did the opposite: lowered limits and raising rates. In fact, for some, they found that their credit card was cancelled.

Sorry if I sound bitter, but the huge amount of greed that these companies (getting our tax dollars) are expressing is just frustrating beyond compare.

I can so relate!  I've been on a lot of interviews, sometimes two and three, and just haven't been able to land a good job.  At this point, "good" is being re-evaluated, leaning more towards "steady and secure".

I'd take just about any job that was willing to hire me at this point, even if it meant working at McDonalds until something better came along. Our family is slowly going under, the way the econemy is right now, so I'm going to have to try and find 2 jobs right now just to stay afloat. I feel for everyone else who's in our shoes, it's very difficult right now because no where is hiring. And people are trying to live off about half of what they were a year ago... All we can do is hope that things will be better next year, because here in Maine NO ONE is hiring at all, in fact pretty much every where is laying people off. It's really sad to see husbands getting fired and trying to support 2-3 kids at home, and having go home and tell their family they have no job anymore. Bush really fucked this country up, and I hope Obama can bring us out of it.  :BangHead:
