    IBM FIRES 1000 IN CANADA TO BEAT NEXT QUATER EARNINGS

    Idiot. They can HIRE MORE? Is that good logic, of course, if you fire AMERICAN workers and replace with INDIAN workers, that goes a long way towards keeping accounts like ASTRAZENECA on-board, doesn't it.

    80,000 emps US by 2015.

      It never dawns on ole re-do-x-a-rowe that IBM wouldn't cut back employees if there was a contract they could be employed at -- get it? IBM doesn't turn away business they want. They may, however, choose to get out of product or service offerings that could make certain staff unemployable at IBM -- like some disk drive and printer engineers. There are many reasons for IBM to cut staff. Some terminations, as yours no doubt did, can get ugly if the individual can't recognize his limitations and he's really dead wood, including a case of B.O. add in a drinking problem and substance abuse issues, bong boy, and it's easy to see why you still hold a grudge. Your posts aren't any good either.

    • Maybe you should tell someone who cares. The management team is doing what needs to be done to grow the business.

    • OK, I think we get your message. Jobs for your kind (AMERICAN) are sacred and to be provided by corporatons regradless of business need. Jobs for those not like you (INDIAN) are somehow wrong. Some sensitive types would suggest that is racist, but......
