A Day of Layoffs, Across Industries and Continents – NYTimes.com
And Texas Instruments said after the market closed on Monday that it would cut 3,400 jobs or 12 percent of its work force through 1,800 layoffs and 1,600 buyouts or retirements.

Surely it should be 58,008 jobs cut, right? After all, to reduce costs, sometimes you need to turn the company upside-down.

  1. the number’s rising day by day. Looks like the tech sector is the most expendable. Glad I never got into that IT career 🙂

  2. Actually, I’d say IT is still pretty strong as a career. An industry dealing in abstractions is always going to see the most fluctuation in terms of jobs and company size, but companies need nerds and there are never enough nerds to supply them.
