Laying off employees has the affect of reducing operational costs and increasing business profits.Read More Businesses are ALWAYS considering methods to slash costs to maximize profits - whether you're making injectable toxins or cupcakes. Otherwise they would be called "charities". It's not nice, but anyone thinking business is "fun", "fulfilling" or "nice", needs to return to reality. Moves like this have nothing to do with morality and never did. It's a damn good thing that businesses adjust their structure because otherwise we'd have companies employing lots of people for the purpose of giving them gainful livelihood. Lastly, there's probably more to the story here than what we read. LF Patch latches on to the layoffs in the headline, but what if the hostile takeover company already has employees in the required roles and doesn't need any more to run the business optimally? What are they supposed to do? Employ and pay 2 persons when 1 will do just fine? This is an inefficient use of resources, and undermines the employee's opportunity to apply their talents to market demand. The only constant in life is change.

The fact that the layoffs are happening in CA is important, but how many times do we learn about jobs that are preserved in CA at the expense of jobs in other states? Answer: Never.

James Cobar July 22, 2014 at 11:40 pm
But why do we need three America's, one White,one Black and now one Latino? Is racism driving thisRead More divide? Is there truth to " united we stand and divided we fall"? And why are our schools more segregated, albeit social segregated, that is, we are more segregated than before Brown v. The Board outlawing forced segregation! Do Whites really believe that because people of color are demanding equality that this means the downfall of White supremacy? And is our neoconservative era really about the supremacy of an us against them? But how can conservative America hold on to their supremacy without a high jobless rate when a low jobless rate makes us liberal since we are an innately liberal people but become conservative when under hard times?
James Cobar July 22, 2014 at 11:50 pm
Further, why have conservatives killed compassion in America? Is it because compassion acknowledgesRead More the plight of the less fortunate and this compassion is necessary if we are to fight against an America of privilege ? Are Liberals really the evil ones?
Fortified- I am Buzzlightyear >>>>>>>> July 23, 2014 at 01:49 am
James: Liberals are not evil. Neither are Republicans.Read More ____________________________________________________ You stated....."But how can conservative America hold on to their supremacy" Can you state how "conservative America" is supreme? The rest of the compassion stuff is really the greatest marketing campaign of a generation. It is pushed 24/7. It is in the fabric of discussions without reservation, being the default position. But simply not so.

My grandson works on Project for the Innocent and if you recall the news, Kash Register was inRead More prison for 34 years for a crime he didn't commit. It was a death penalty case. His innocence was finally proved. I used to be for the death penalty but now I'm not. Our judicial system is broken. I'm not a bleeding heart liberal, actually I'm very conservative on mostly everything except this. I think appeals should be stopped. Go to jail, stay there FOR LIFE! Death is an easy way out!
