Old man is loosin his job

My dad is loosin his job after working there 28 years. Good ol'former president bush and another individual bought the company that he works for. They fixed it up and now they have sold it to the chinese. They told him that on Dec. 31 is his last day of work. Nice christmas present, huh. Watch out for politicians and all i have to say to them is

NESBA #88

Madness Racing wishes he could handle the power of a GSXR

All my homies left this site

loosin?

Losing.

Too bad about your dad. Is he getting any severance or partial retirement or anything? What does he do? There's a TON of jobs out there, and there's no reason he shouldn't be able to get back to work quickly. Hell, if he's a machinist in SD, I'll put him to work!

1st they outsource Everything to China then they keep the FBI busy trying to fight the counterfeiting going on in China.
Execs. know for a fact that anything made there will be copied there, then we waste our resources fighting counterfeiting so that a private or public company doesn't lose money to what they invited.

Sorry your dad got caught up in the B.S.

LoL. We'll be just fine.

Economics 101: We've been outsourcing jobs for how long now? Yet we are still creating them. For every job that's outsourced, new jobs are created to replace them elsewhere. Changing jobs is a damn sight different than losing jobs.

Unemployement is at nearly record lows (not considering last week, which will have an effect, but that effect will be countered when the rebuilding begins). There's a ton of work out there in many different fields. The only people that are not working right now are the people that don't want to work.

The stock markets are still rising. Gas prices are up across the board, but that is short term, as half the refineries are set to be back up and running in a few days (weeks at most) and we will see lower gas prices, as well as lower oil prices. (The oil price could be a problem if it gets too low, and I predict, with the recent scare, that demand will sharply deminish for oil across the globe, causing the price to drop dramatically to levels we haven't seen in a while.) (BTW, it's nice to see you fuckers paying as much and in some places more than I typically pay for once. :D )

Perhaps you should research things just a bit before you get all butt-hurt over something that isn't even an issue. People change jobs all the time. Learn to adapt or learn to pan-handle.

BTW, many MANY manufacturers are finding the quality of China and the lack of communication capability during the mfg process there less than acceptable. If you're in the industry, and quality is an issue, prepare to start seeing things come back to the US.

#1: China is building infrastructure at an alarming rate
#2: They are building it to take more work from the US not sending it back
#3; They are buying more concrete, steel and oil than the US
#4 The only jobs I know of being created in the US are Homeland Security
Biometric and now New Orleans might have some levee repair jobs.
#5: You sound like a recording of Rush Limbaugh
#6: Sunbeam, K-Mart, MARS Musician's Planet, Enron, Ford, GM and Chrysler
ALL disagree that "the economy is fine"
#7: Are you buying stock?
#8: Do the Casino workers in Biloxi not want to work?
#9: Tell me the economy is fine when you have to pay more income tax
because all the Callcenter, Contract Manufacturer and ODM workers
that replaced our jobs won't be paying federal and state tax in the US
#10: Do some research yourself?

My bike won masterbike...did yours?
I didn't think so...

People that sit back and do nothing and think this way, is whats going to kill us. Why do you think the gas prices are going up? Because china is using way more oil than it ever has before. This hurricane thing is a temporary minor impact on oil prices, China's demand for it is the real threat. They are quickly becoming the most industrious country in the world.

That's "one sided"...not even an Apple iPOD..
They just released the tie to the American $$ with their currency that gave them an unfair price advantage..they are still regulating the value.
