Welcome to 50% Unemployment...11.10.9



November 02, 2009 – Comments (17)

I warned you should be prepared for a 50% family income loss or you are not prepared.

The City of Canandaigua could layoff half of its fire department.

It’s a proposal coming from the City Manager to close a $1.7 million gap in the 2010 budget.

The city’s 14 firefighters are outraged and threaten a lawsuit if the city approves the measure. Some merchants say they’re scared.

As revenues evaporate...expect 50% of all workers to lose their jobs or  all workers to get a 50% wage cut.

It was just a matter of time before Zombulation hits the is not the end of the world, simply the end of the world as you know it.

It is not hard to see....simply difficult to accept.

But don't be scared.....prepare!!!!!!

Lots of cash, a little metal......and stay close to those you are close to.....and even some that could use a bit of company.

Not as poor as you now you Feel.

In an effort to balance their 2010 budget, Elgin city leaders are laying off between 15 to 17 union workers, a move that will save about $1.2 million.

It's the third batch of layoffs in the last 12 months.

Third Batch??????????????????

I understand your skepticism....people thought the same thing when I projected housing was going to decline in value 50%, new home construction would decline 75%, pensions would go bankrupt, the banking system would collapse, and cities, counties and states would be forced to lay off millions of workers.....

You will come you start to Feel 11.10.9.....

Um . . . what about your 9.09 prediction or the MOAP?  I don't follow them, I simply chuckle all they way to the bank.

Had folks listened to your doom and gloom for the past 6 months, they would have lost a 40, 50, 60% return.  Some did much better as they were leveraged and employing options. 

Ignore the manufacturing data from today, ignore the housing data, ignore 3 QTR GDP, ignore guidance from our bell weathers, ignore the breadth of evidence and pick and choose what comes up from "job losses" when you type it in Google.

What a joke.  Please don't listen to Alstry.  I don't want you to lose money.

Remember...Alstrynomics started blogging when the Dow was 14,000......

You simply don't understand the impact of is spreading across the nation....and you will Feel 11.10.9

MI Windows and Doors will cease production at its window-fabrication plant in Salisbury by Dec. 31. The facility has 110 employees.

A community in Luzerne County took a blow Monday when it was announced a major employer is closing.  Monday was a sad day at the plant in Freeland. A spokesman with Garland Commercial Industries said the landmark business will close by July of next year. The 200 people who make commercial grills and stoves will be out of work.

Whether you prepare or not makes little difference to the Zombulator......the policies are in place and you will begin to Feel...whether you like it or not.

Higher taxes....lower pay....the zombulator is coming your way.....11.10.9......until there is no more time....

The closing of two Piggly Wiggly stores in Northeast Wisconsin will leave as many as 124 people without jobs.

Notice there is no geographic or industry bias to the closings, layoffs, and wage cuts.....welcome to the law of LARGE numbers.

And nobody can escape the LAW!!!!!!!

Shoot this one is coming up pretty close... So what happens when 11.10.09 goes by without anything at all happening?


12.11.10? That might give you enough time to get the word out.

I don't know why you guys keep beating up on altstry. Don't shoot the messenger. Yes, he goes hyperbolic sometimes to get attention, but what he talks about are true issues.

Just today in the news - JNJ and NOK each to eliminate 5-7% of their global workforce.These are huge companies.  Guess, from which coutry the majority of the jobs will be eliminated?

I received news from a reliable source that Wellpoint is laying off 1500 of its 4300 IT staff - nearly 30%!  It's their second or third round of layoffs. 

For those of you that don't like the contents of this post or the guy who posted it - why do you continue to read them and comment on them?  It's pretty simple to avoid clicking on it.

I went ahead and gave rec #13 'cause I felt like it ;_).
