      Do you know how we know when a RECESSION starts and when it ends? Do some research. Educate your mind before posting silly rants like this. Not every thing in the world revolves around the silly notion of what is and what is not democrat or republican.. Simpleton!

  2. what now? says:

    I hope they were union jobs.

    Yeah, why should we want good paying jobs around when we can all work for 10 bucks an hour like the Republicans want us to. Who would want to work a job that pays enough so people can buy a new car and keep auto workers working? Who would want to work a job that pays enough to buy a house and keep the construction workers working? Not me!! I would rather work two jobs at 60+ hours a week just to keep a roof over my head. You people who are against unions need to stop listening to the Repukican garbage and become a member of the real world. With the Republicans they want NO middle class, just upper and lower. That’s the facts!!!

      Get over yourself. Companies lay off because their overhead is too high.

    Companies also lay off because they’re losing money. Companies lose money because their product doesn’t compare favorably to the rest of the market. Seriously…check quality and prices and you’ll see why Super Valu is hurting. The old mom and pop grocery stores are a thing of the past. Sad but true.
