Unfortunately, some people I really like and respect were laid off today. And, naturally, to top it off, too many of the idiots got to stay.
For the record, I work for one of the industries that's supposed to be darn near recession-proof. And the layoffs and cost-cutting measures are nowhere near insignificant. This shit is bad, people. And it's brought to you by bad people. Who are getting richer even as we speak.
