More cutbacks at IBM in Essex Junction.

Less than two months after 419 employees lost their jobs, more workers are losing some of their pay. IBM says it is furloughing all employees across the country who work in the Systems and Technology Group. That includes the chip plant in Vermont. Employees will be required to take one week off at one-third pay. Managers will get no pay.

The world's biggest computer company says it is cutting costs after seeing revenues for its hardware products drop 12 percent in the second quarter compared to a year ago.

Alliance at IBM-- a union organizing group-- says the company continues to punish workers while spending billions to shore up its stock price.

America is imploding financially, look at local financial news around the nation. Vermont is in fact in much better shape than a great deal of the nation. There are cutbacks happening everywhere.

The 10 states with the worst economies right now are:

Mississippi, Nevada, West Virginia, California, Alabama, Florida, South Carolina, Michigan, Georgia and Kentucky.
Going for it

Vermont is simply more adept at gaming the numbers. Instead, Take note of the prices being asked and the numbers being offered of purebred dogs. That is a good indicator of the financial health of an area.

the S.E. Vermont economy would be better if that mongrel dog lezzbo former Sheriff hadn't ripped off 70 Grand in public funds, a crime for which she got a mere slap on the wrist and her felony reduced while other embezzlers like her get the slammer

as for IBM, only obliviots don't know the fact that such globalist-run co.s have No loyalty to America and have been outsourcing as much of their labor overseas for years anyhow. The meaning of 'I' in IBM should have been a clue even if ewe haven't heard of the scam of 'free trade' and the 'New World Order' which have been pushed by the globalists AKA internationalists, especially the ones who own the banks

The media keeps telling us that the economy is recovering, improving. I don't believe them, however.
