So, there are more lay offs (Hostess and banks in Britain and other smaller businesses). It is a tough economy out there, but I don't know how far complaining and being hysterical is going to help.
I want to say that this may be a decent time to put money together (if people are serious about working) as a group and go in on a business. Not like shops and such, but like businesses that are needed. Do decent research on what is doing good and what is needed, then pool money together and interview people for positions and start a business like the one they were in before. Make it American owned and supported (yes, we need to do our part to support USA businesses) and hire US citizens (legal) and give the big companies competition. Eventually, they will have to bring jobs back here and bring prices down to be able to stay in business if we build our own businesses (the 47% and Middle class--alienate the rich) and essentially ignore them.
Greed destroys, not grows.
I wish people would stop being negative to the point of not trying to find solutions.
