So we'll expect the jobs numbers for November to worsen significantly, then, correct?

Because there were never any layoffs before. Never. Companies don't do that. Only when Obama gets re-elected.

Fifty jobs will be created in Cordele when a new wood treatment plant being built by Stella-Jones Inc. of Montreal, Quebec. The company will supply railroad ties

Due to continued growth, Chairman of the Board and Owner James Brosious announces plans to expand and relocate his company FreightCenter, Inc. to a new office in northern Pinellas County beginning in 2013.

The freight service provider will relocate its Trinity-based operations to a larger corporate park in the Highland Lakes area of Palm Harbor. The move is expected to triple office space and allow for the addition of 60 new employees.

Thomas Anthony Guerriero CEO of WMX Group Holdings, Inc.(WMXG:OTCBB) Plans To Hire Over 1,000 Wealth Advisors In The Next 12 Months

Diplomat Specialty Pharmacy said it had an immediate need to fill 100 full-time jobs, primarily in patient care coordination, order entry and customer service

Edward Jones Hires 300 Military Veterans for Advisor Positions

There's more- LOTS more. This is since Nov. 6th, too...

Too easy.

Do you seriously believe it was just an accident or coincidence that 98 companies have announced layoffs since Wednesday? THEN you give examples of all the jobs created at three companies because of your Obamesiah? It is easy isn't it? Hey you just keep the faith - your messiah is going to come through for youI am sure. I think the remnants of George W's policies are what caused the stock market to crash immediately after the election too.
You keep that faith and show us all what your messiah is doing for the country he loves so very much. Poetic justice would be that the layoffs are the worst in the swing states like Ohio,Virginia, Colorado and the like. May the messiah do his best work for those who have rewarded him so handsomely. His shining jewel - the auto industry is fixed thankfully now that they have gone socialist and the public keeps them afloat.

Praise Obamamessiah!

It is just a matter of time - keep praying to him.

WMX? Those are rich bankers.... those are evil people... rich bankers must taxed 100%! They need to pay.

What ever happened to all of those google jobs that Granmole brought to MI? Did they ever materialize?

There will be more... plenty more. Hours will be cut to stay under the limit. Moe jobs wil be ct to stay under the limits. And prices will go higher. Check out what the owner of PoppaJohns Pizza said. HeKs not the only one.

i guess i was thinking lets check on these jobs in 6 yrs and see where they are...
"Google located one of its headquarters in Ann Arbor in 2006 and stated it would bring in 1,000 jobs within five years. At the time Granholm called it a “huge, huge, huge, huge” deal. This week, reported that Google created just 300 jobs in Ann Arbor."

something to look forward to i guess, eh?

I'd entertain the idea that government stop providing incentives like this, or clean energy, or whatever. Nobody is offering me a bunch of cash to expand.

Shocking. I used my own opinion. You should try that.

Sorry, RIM has been on the way out for years. It's ever shrinking smartphone market share along with its continually late OS updates as well as its lackluster newer models will be the final nails in it's coffin. The only thing that is keeping them afloat is their patents.

I have heard though, that its Obama's fault that VCR production has come to a complete standstill. Nice going voters!!
