Jobless man hits the streets in a new suit and a sandwich board.Keep your eye out for Paul Nawrocki. The 59 year old has been out of work for 9 months and he's taken to marching the streets of New York, donning a sandwich board that announces his status of "almost homeless", and passing out his resume to anyone who will take it. Supposedly he's had a few bites...

While I'm sure that's all fine and great for those receiving the payouts, is this really the time to start tossing money around? They've already be...

You Might be getting canned.There's no question that everyone on Wall Street and elsewhere is feeling nervous about the future of their careers with the economy in the nosedive that it's been in over the past few months. Now apparently companies are coming up with new, creative terms to use instead of "layoffs", I guess to so...

More fabulous news for BofABofA employees can breathe a collective sigh of relief knowing they most likely won't get anything close to a bonus this year, and probably won't have jobs in a few months. If that's what they're concerned about, that is. The banking giant has officially assumed $16.6 billion debt from Countrywid...

Early Debate Prediction: Socialists Win BIG!***RANT ALERT - IF YOU'RE NOT IN THE MOOD, SKIP IT!*** I'll bet Karl Marx is having Dish Network installed in the 9th Circle of Hell today in anticipation of tonight's doubtless espousal of his poisonous doctrines by both pretenders to the throne.

A sign of the times?Packaged food company Sara Lee is reporting a 15% increase in net income. In fact, in North America their retail revenue has increased 11%. I'm sure it will continue to go up. In fact, it's probably directly proportionate to the number of people being laid off, stopping off at the convenience st...

Not so great but could have been worse.Well, not surprisingly the market was unable to maintain its upward climb after yesterdays historical rally. It closed down, but certainly nothing that resembles last week's fiasco, thank God. The day was the usual roller coaster as the Dow fluctuated between a rise of 406 points and a drop of 302...
