The Economy Hits Close to Home

This morning the company where I have labored for the past 3+ years laid of over 100 employees in Florida and more around the country. Two were let go from the 18-person office where I work inculding the person with whom I have been carpooling since October. That's pretty close to home. Several smaller offices will be closed which means more commuting for those that are relocated to the larger offices.

I am fortunate to have kept my job.

The irony of this is that the $787 Billion stimulus bill signed by the President includes nearly $3o Billion in roadway projects. That's what this company does. But that did not sway the company leaders nor does it make those that left any happier.

Got to go,
