    Thanks Joe, you senile, dementia-ridden old ****.

    sure. I’m sure companies will slow down the layoffs now
    Meaning....they don't have to offer ungodly wages to attract new employees?

    Article on the Boeing deal with the Department of Justice. Nice quote: “This airplane was designed by clowns, who in turn are supervised by monkeys.”

    What did the insurance company say about it? I'm planning to talk to ACT Insurance customer service later today and will definitely ask for their opinion about the case. It's crucial to spend some time choosing the right insurance company, don't you think? There are so many factors to consider, and getting professional advice can make all the difference in finding a policy that truly meets your needs. Ensuring you have the right coverage and support is essential, especially in complex situations.

    Some chatter picking up now as the number of people unemployed 27 weeks or more really spiked.

    despite all the celebrating about jobs and the economy, it’s not telling the whole picture. No one will weep for educated white collar workers like myself unable to get a job, but the effects will continue to spread and have downstream effects

    corporations are achieving exactly what they wanted by the layoffs. They are grabbing the power back after the great resignation because we can’t let the people have some progress

    The mean home price in Manhattan is two point seven million dollars.

They have absolutely no idea what led to the success and don't really care. But they begin "cutting redundancies" and trying to make it more efficient and lean. Creatives get annoyed and leave, and the result is a hollowed out shell. Sometimes the result is Deadspin. But in almost all cases, it's bad.


    Late stage capitalism is a bunch of fun.
    TBF, the last stage in this specific situation is “creative leaves to stream on Twitch or start own YouTube channel (or both) and immediately becomes successful (or at least popular enough to make a decent living).”

    Granted, when your wellbeing is dependent on the whims of fickle people and the generosity of Amazon and Google, it’s not all that great.

    This was the right move. Visa and MC need to take it up the *** for their practices.
