They can start with their pro government propaganda cheerleaders that they call writers and contributors on yahoo finance. What a waste.
Yahoo!Finance writers are the biggest joke around definitely.
But, but...saving the big banks...that was supposed to stop this, right?
Look at the ffront page of the NY Times right now.....
They have a comments section......time to give them a little bit of what the Zero Hedge crowd thinks about such blatant propaganda.
Yahoo finance will post some article pumping the GM IPO and then when people start coming in and commenting on what a scam the IPO was, they suspend the comments and all you get is "server error" when trying to post.
Why do Yahoo finance articles get so many "server errors" when a small shop like zero hedge can have comments enabled without much trouble? LOL.
nauuuu, ya don't say. Wait till Q1 layoff's are announced sector wide. It's gonna be great fun!
What Tyler conveniently failed to mentioned is that Yahoo and other tech giants are STILL claiming that they can't find tech talent, in their eternal efforts to bring in more cheap labor via H1-B's. You won't see any mention anywhere of how many H1-B's they are getting rid of.
In short, the logic boils down to: they can't find the tech talent they need, so they will have to get rid of more full time local tech workers.
Another thing you never see mentioned is the fact that, if they eliminated all of the people here on an H1-B visa, and replaced those workers with IT people who are unemployed, the unemployment rate in the Tech industry would be very significantly reduced, if not nearly eliminated.
But it's all about cheap labor.
At my place of work we see more and more international engineers working for the company and less americans. They get them with the H1 visas and they got them for so many years and they don't pay them nearly as much as an american would want for the position. As one person put it, yes it is hard to find technical workers especially if you want them to work 60 or 70 hours a week at minimum wage.
State Street bank to layoff 5%  of its employees. Apparently, banking...not so good. No?
This is the way corporations say Merry Christmas.
Chang should have sold to Balllmer when he had the chance.
2-3 million fall off UE/food stamp rolls monthly from here on out...keep on rockin the free world!
I love the sound of layoffs in the morning. It sounds like... profits.
just on time for the holidays...lol
Um, why is yahoo still in business? Lay them ALL off. Yahoo is GIANT FAIL!
See, on Thrae, The Bizarro World, everything is backwards.
Yogi Berra would be President.
increased unemployment = more workers for the unemployed..oh yeah..this insanity is getting serioUS
"Oh, about that Christmas bonus (boned-ass) you were expecting...."
I have been searching for work on and off for years now. There are many job openings for positions that maybe 6 people worldwide could fit the skill set. 2 of them work for the company, 2 of them work for the competitor and the other 2 were laid off a year and a half ago. Since corps. refuse to train, they wine and bitch about a lack of "trained workers". They can go to hell! It is their own damn fault they can not find a highly trained worker willing to work 60 hour weeks at minimum wage.
Corporations are without heart. Spare me the Shareholder value creation lie that has been sold up and down th eworld regrding american corporate culture.
Spare me too the vacuous argument that this is after all about money, people be damned.
Maybe it's time for the tech giants who were birthed in the great lie of the .con revolution to just go away.
