IBM Layoffs: Bad Economy as a Smokescreen for Outsourcing | Business Pundit
IBM to Cut U.S. Jobs, Expand in India - WSJ.com
Gotta love that ,Good Job USA! Keep letting these companys get away with whatever they want, cause money is all that matters anymore..............
Rotten Bastards..somehow this will be Obama's fault.. nothing to do with greed or bottom line.
If you have a war on business they will relocate (if possible) to locations where they are wanted and not seen as evil...
Not complicated. The US has had high corp taxes and the current administration is declaring war on capitalism,why would anyone be suprised. The current administration didn't start this they are going to make it far worse with their war on business.
Exactly, there's really nothing "partisan" about it. People so need to move past that and stop polarizing everything,or trying to
The real "bottom line" is that it's sad to see this once blue-chip icon of our country head out to foreign soil. From a business standpoint it's probably a very wise move on their part, unfortunately. They didn't become what they are due to a lack of foresight.
Sort of along those lines: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/03/27/business/27tax.html?partner=rss&emc=rss
it is the fault of the democratic party.........and obama is part of that party, so he is to blame for much of this.........
what do you want them to do? pay extra just because the dems say so?
look at the first word of the name of the company......say it with me.......'INTERNATIONAL'
I would do the exact same thing because there is absolutely no motivation to do otherwise
it is sad.......but the worst part about it is the government could be doing something about it instead of nailing these companies to a wall
Wasn't Obama going to stop this kind of thing and protect American jobs ? I know moves like this were Bush's fault until January
Doing what exactly? Lower US wages so we compare to a third world country? I think we're already moving along nicely in that regard actually. Aren't you getting a little tired of govt intervention? I know I am.
You want small govt yet when trouble strikes people start screaming for the "govt to DO something"
JMHO but I think this govt's doing quite a bit,unfortunately. And nothing that's happening now would be possible without Bush's contributions. He left this country ripe for anything and everything Obama's team is doing. Nothing Obama's doing could've happened without the events and governances of the last 8 years. Obama's moving with the speed of light tho and just like the Bush years,much of it flies under the mainstream headlines.
IBM quietly laid off 5,000-no fuss no muss. It's just gone.
Don't worry, that won't change just because it's not January.
He must have meant GOVT jobs:singing: Or maybe he considers Mandated Volunteerism to be "jobs" cuz they're paid a stipend LOL.
you are right......I do want small government and I don't care who is screaming
actually, to me its not what the government is doing so much as what the government should stop doing that burdens unduly burdens businesses.......like double taxing any profits distributed to employees
