what would really impress me is someone who posted the amount of jobs being reduced from as many data points as possible, while also posted the amount of jobs increased from as many data points as possible.

this is a +/- kind of game, and so to get a good view on whether or not policy is working, we must, to the best of our ability, see whether we are generally increasing or decreasing jobs.

I can confirm this kind of thing is happening... I work for a company that was bought by a big pharma firm and they are laying off because they didn't make as much profit as they projected.

They still made a profit mind you, it just wasn't as fat as they thought.

Total hiring freeze on perm employees, and also some layoffs, too.

If the rate of mass layoffs in hospitals remains steady, the industry is slated to have a similar number of mass layoffs in 2012 as it did in 2011, according to an American Medical News report.

The first nine months of 2012 brought 93 layoff incidents that left 6,529 people claiming unemployment benefits. A total of 124 mass layoffs are projected for the year, if this rate continues, affecting roughly 8,700 people. [link to www.beckershospitalreview.com]

Malkin: Obama's layoff bomb


By Michele Malkin
Updated: 11/02/2012 02:23:55 PM EDT

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported last Tuesday that employers issued 1,316 "mass layoff actions" (affecting 50 workers or more) in September; more than 122,000 workers were affected overall. USA Today financial reporter Matt Krantz wrote that "(m)uch of the recent layoff activity is connected to what's been the slowest period of earnings growth since the third quarter of 2009." Some necessary restructuring is underway in response to the stagnant European economy. But more and more U.S. businesses are putting the blame -- bravely and squarely -- right where it belongs: on the obstructionist policies and regulatory schemes of the blame-shifter-in-chief.
