    Just announced:

    Walmart is cutting about 9 % of its Sam's club staff, 10,000 jobs. this is on the heels of last month's closing 10 of the warehouses and a loss at that time of 1,500 jobs.

    Guess no one told them the recession is over.

    In my life things have never been worse where I live. Obama and the Democrats don't have a clue where jobs come from. As they grow government jobs, like freedom, shrink. The only real question is whether Obama is destroying this country on purpose or is he really that stupid.

    Funny. Only federal government jobs are growing. The city and state government jobs in my area are all shrinking along with private jobs. I love his stat about saved jobs. No such thing. There are only jobs lost and jobs created, not jobs saved.

    Obama did add thousands of new jobs for IRS agents. The Gov is strapped and looking for revenue.

    UPDATE: I also heard that Home Depot is closing some stores.
    If they would have only waited until after this "great speech" tonight, they would not have to close these stores!!! The same for Verizon. Cray

    a lot of the jobs lost at sams club were the part timers, & the ones that give away free samples. maybe most are headed back to mexico. oh yeah probably going to be some temporary job losses at toyota,but the big 3 bashers seem to shy to bring this up..

    Jobs have not been entirely cut. They are being outsourced to another company who will most likely hire back the same laid off workers. Would be my uneducated guess that this will relieve Wal-Mart of having to pay health care or other benefits.
