Default Mass Layoffs Beginning

Things are starting to get ugly out there. Never underestimate how desperate people
can get when they get hungry, and homeless.


NEW YORK ( -- The number of layoff announcements involving at least 50 workers rose in September to the highest level since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks seven years ago, the government said Wednesday.

There were 2,269 mass layoff actions, up 497 from August, according to statistics released by the Labor Department. That was the most mass layoffs since the 2,407 in September 2001.
