IBM  ------->   Big (Butcher) Blue

Quote
Weeks of speculation and nervous anticipation of expected job cuts at IBM’s Essex Junction facility ended Thursday when Gov. Peter Shumlin confirmed layoffs were beginning, drawing a sharp response from his political opposition.

“I have been advised by leadership at the IBM Vermont plant in Essex Junction of layoff notifications there as part of a global workforce reduction,” Shumlin said in a statement sent at 9:40 a.m.

He said he was told the number of workers affected was about one-third the number let go in June,, “although we will not know the exact number of affected workers until the process is completed and a state notice is filed by the company next month,” Shumlin’s statement said. The June layoff affected 419 workers.

Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
