I agree with your post THROW! Wow!!
It’s called late stage capitalism. It’s where we are. But God forbid we change anything. You know, because communism/socialism/isms in general. So we must trudge forward because only capitalism works… or something.

It's a dynamic I truly do not understand. Part of a number of historical situations where I think future generations will look back and go "what the hell were they thinking?"

"Don't play with matches." Good idea.

"Don't run with scissors." Good idea.

"Don't drive drunk." Good idea.

"Wear a seatbelt." Good idea.

"Put on clothes." Good idea.

"Social distance, wear a mask, and/or get vaccinated against a deadly pandemic." DoN't YoU TeLl Me WhAt To DO!!!!!

The only thing more dangerous than the notion she is bringing up is the amount of people who go along with it.

This is why American workers need to forget about any kind of corporate loyalty and go for the juggler when it comes to negotiating pay. Layoffs happen, but this guy is a POS for doing it this way. I hope the internet destroys that company.

Umm ya, jugular, my bad. Good catch surprisingly. I'm shook, because I expected you to correct me about as much as I suspect that Throw is an English Professor. wink

Now how about a comment on the content? Or is that asking too much from the grammar popo?

Ok.

It seems to me that this startup is being run irresponsibly and they need to review leadership in the company. As well as their policies.

I predict that company is a fail.

Theres no good way to lay off employees, but I will tell you how Delta did it when I worked there. They gave everybody a pay cut. So all the more talented expensive experienced employees quit of their own accord. So it was their choice and no layoffs happened. Same result as if a layoff happened without all the negative dramatic impact.

Not to say Delta never had layoffs. But I just remember that strategy. It worked fairly well.

First, I didn't open the link, so maybe it was explained, but I will offer my opinion with you knowing i didn't watch.

First, layoffs suck...everybody knows that. Especially mass layoffs. It's one thing to terminate a dozen people v hundreds.

Second, layoffs don't just happen for no good reason, especially mass layoffs. It doesn't sound like that company is doing all that well if they have to let go 900 people. A company many times can carry some "fat" and keep a few extra people around, but 900 is way more than "fat".

Third, as I am sure you well know, the watercooler network is pretty strong in most companies. Most people have a feel if something like that is going to happen. I think most knew that invite to zoom with the CEO was bad news. I think you were in the Navy. You had your usual chain of command for whatever rank you held. If your boatswain wanted to see you....normal stuff. If you were told to report to the Captain at 13:00, you'd be hoping it was because you did something well, but more likely you would be sweating your ass off.


If everybody had like minds, we would never learn.

The timeline isn't really clear, but it sounds like this layoff is happening on the heels of a lot of hiring and an acquisition along with a cash infusion.

Layoffs suck but they happen (especially when a company is going through the activity above). It's normal. That said, this CEO sounds really weak and a tool. Generally, companies don't do well under this type of leadership. Layoffs before the holidays are indicative of a complete lack of tact (for lack of a better word) and/or planning. Why not lay these people off earlier when hiring was bonkers earlier this summer?

The article also doesn't mention what the severance packages were, so there's hope for those involved.


There is no level of sucking we haven't seen; in fact, I'm pretty sure we hold the patents on a few levels of sucking NOBODY had seen until the past few years.

The results are in!

Inflation surged 6.8%, even more than expected, in November to fastest rate since 1982

President Joe Biden has been paying a political price for surging prices: A recent CNBC survey showed his approval rating stuck at just 41%, due in large part to 56% of respondents who disapprove of his economic record, compared to just 37% who approve.

Fair point and true.. but economic growth has consistently outpaced inflation so we have been creating an unsustainable condition for quite a while... inflation has been kept at bay by manipulating fed policies, importing cheap goods, and wage stagnation at the bottom of the earnings scale... eventually it catches up with you.

By far the most Christian president in modern times. And it isn’t even close. donny certainly couldn’t even begin to hold a candle to him.
He’s a model American. Respectful, good husband and father, charitable, humble, etc.
He may not have been a great president, but he’s a good man.

Well, Biden's policies of shutting down oil production and at the same time pumping to much money into the economy while there is a shortage of things to buy causing the "Transitory" wish to collapse has certainly brought inflation on faster.

Now that rampant inflation is secured, its on to finishing off small businesses with Mandates.

Downhill we go.

There's no doubt Jimmy is a good man. None, whatsoever. Bad president? Perhaps, but good man.

As for inflation, does anyone know why it's going up? Sure, pandemic. Supply shortages, cause too few want to work. That leads to higher wages to get people to work. Great idea, right?

Eh, most of the higher wages are more than eaten up by the inflation. And we all pay. I've raised my prices, so that I can pay my bills, not sit on extra money.

It's weird, isn't it, how it all comes around, full circle, just like someone I know very well said long ago. Jack the wages up, watch the prices go up as much, if not more.

So? Tell me when any president has faced the unprecedented fallout from a complete economic shut down by his predecessor? I am pleased in the way this has been handled, and if we ever get back to being able to be productive again, it will pay off in spades. But y'all want Biden to get out there himself and unload ships, drive trucks, and coddle you like infants after y'all elected a domestic terrorist who all but destroyed the democracy. SMH, your opinions don't matter.

I really can't make sense out of this post.

Fact: Jacking up wages has jacked up prices, yet companies still can't find employees that will work - WORK.




Inflation is here. Enjoy it. Raise your prices. Not to make more, just to keep up. The consumers, the working class, will be worse off due to inflation. Mark my words. I said it many months ago. Here it is. Enjoy your higher wages. Those on the low end aren't able to keep up. The middle class is struggling.

Watch your heating bills this winter, cost of food, insurance, pretty much everything.

Inflation pulls no one up. Inflation sucks everyone down.

I’d like to take it a step further, and ask what he considers to be a conservative.

He considers me a liberal, so that makes you one, too, DC. Welcome to the club.

What makes no sense is this. arch says " Supply shortages, cause too few want to work. That leads to higher wages to get people to work." Where the hell did he get this from?

Hundreds of thousands of jobs are being created every month. Where does he think all of these new people are going to come from to fill those jobs? Where does he think they came from?

The federal unemployment benefits ended every where after the first week of September. People haven't been getting that money for months. They're working. But when a million new jobs get created, you have to have a million people to fill them. Approximately 450k jobs were created in October alone.

People simply have more jobs to choose from. When more jobs get created it increases the number of jobs available. People have more choices and companies must compete for workers. It's that same supply and demand they crow about so often. The trouble is, when it starts working in the direction of where workers benefit they try and look for someone to blame for it. And as per usual, it's the American worker.

The labor participation rate is still lower than what it was precovid. That rate is still lower than what it was pre-2008. Overall, in the last 12 years, fewer people are working.

As I said, it's a supply and demand issue.

Raw numbers would work fine if one actually refuses to look at what those numbers mean and why those numbers exist.
