Most business that have to do any layoff happen after the holiday season. Suppose to be less depressive.

EGM was rumored ages ago so it's no surprise, don't ever use 1up either so no great loss for me.

1up had awesome podcasts, EGM was a good magazine a long time ago, before the internet was popular.

I do not like this link. Looks like forum chatter that isn't even well presented. Our site kills that one.

We layed off our people a week before Christmas. 88billion in profit isn't enough to keep us going even in these tough times.

For the first time in our company's 40 year history they are laying people off. Bad times indeed.

Well, I linked to a specific post on the blog, rather than make people search the page.

I normally wouldn't link to another blog like that, but I thought it would be interesting for people.

I got a raise also! But starting next year FedEx will not be contributing to my 401k. Hopefully that's as far as it goes.
