This type of thing happened to a friend of mine.  They were told they could go home early on a Friday, only to have senior management come in a seize all the computers before opening up Monday AM.  He was laid off on that Monday.

I bet the bomb scare was a hoax.  It was to buy time for all the computers to be quarantined and those people were then let go.

It could have been called in by a disgruntled employee, just having learned of layoffs.

Still supports your thesis however.

Reason stated for filing: Plant Layoff


Plant? So a bank is a plant, or maybe the IBM 360 COBOL/RPG program that produces this report hasn't been updated to allow for financial institution layoffs.

Or perhaps they failed a random drug test.

The draft of Hungary's proposed Central Bank Bill has been posted on Parliament's website on Wednesday. While the rationale section almost exclusively focuses on how the new legislation is designed to ensure the independence of the National Bank of Hungary, the actual changes to the current law suggest otherwise. If the new bill is passed, not only could two additional seats be added to the rate-setting Monetary Council, but the government would also have a mandate to appoint another Vice Governor - both without consulting the NBH first. 


In other words, The goverment is taking controll over the Hungarian central bank

Makes for a larger bonus pool for the top-tier playerz. Of course they will have fewer workers going into next year and lower expectations, but nobody cares, because there will be no next year.

They are eating their own. And then there were none.

Tyler - You may be confused how this works.  The WARN notice is not just to NY State, but also to the employees.  The WARN act requires employers to give the state and the employees 90 days notice when the company is laying off a large number of employees in a single geographical area.  The employees are certainly not finding out via this NYS web site.  Individuals typically find out the same day the notice is filed with the state.

The obvious answer is that the honey plant must produce.

Unemployment has become discouraging. Despair is in the air and everyone is breathing it.

The slaves are feeling a sense of malaise.

When confronted with unemployment in the current climate they will chose to grab at the brass ring.

Breed, declare insolvency, target social benefits to offset loss of income. Wash, rinse, repeat.

It's the only solution to an upside down pyramid. Increase population.
