Triangle jobless rate jumps to 9 percent - Local/State - NewsObserver.com (http://www.newsobserver.com/news/local_state/story/311489.html - broken link)

It doesn't seem it's getting any easier to find a job around here...maybe in the spring things will get better.

Didn't we say that last winter?

Our office gets layoff letters next Tuesday. That'll add another 400 people to the ranks of the jobless.

Oh dear, that's not good. I was kinda hoping the mass layoffs were going to be fewer and farther between the more we got into 2010. Hopefully your position will be OK. Fingers crossed for you.

Everyone in the building is getting laid off. There are only 20 people out of 400 who are being offered jobs in GA or CA. I already know that I'm getting laid off again. . . .the question is how long do I get to stay on in order to train the guy in China who will be inheriting my duties.

Telecom has been hit MAJORLY hard in this area. Ericsson, Sony Ericsson, Wavecom, and Nortel all shutting down. RIM and Garmin coming in, but initially with less than 100 jobs total. I was talking to one of the local salesmen for a telecom test equipment company and he said that he can't find anyone to sell to anymore in this area.
