    Per IBM bosses: You people are morons

    The American corporate bosses believe that American population is retarded. It is so pathetic! It is ALL about greed. There are tons of very smart people in this country (not in DC), but nobody protects them. No unions, no parties (two party system is slightly better than the one kept in the Soviet Union). No choice here. People are like sheep. Call our reps in Congress.

    And no, I do not work for IBM. Alcoa is cutting 5ooo jobs too. I just hate to see nothing but wallmarts in this country.

    As IBM cuts in U.S., it hires in India

    Report: Big Blue plans to bring on 14,000 Indian workers as it proceeds with U.S., European layoffs.

    NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - IBM is planning to hire more than 14,000 new workers in India this year, even as the company proceeds with layoffs of up to 13,000 workers in Europe and the United States, the New York Times reported Friday, citing an internal company document.

    IBM (Research) Senior Vice President Robert Moffat, in an interview with the newspaper, said the move is not entirely about cost saving.

    "People who say this is simply labor arbitrage don't get it. It's mostly about skills," Moffat was quoted as saying.
