My name is Mike and I live in Western NY, an area which is seeing the financial destruction of job loss just like many other places in the US. I have spent the last 20 years as a Quality Control Manager for a large environmental remediation firm and then as a Documentation Analyst for a large manufacturing operation. I have a little extra time to dedicate to this blog, since I am a 1099 and finished up a long term project a few months ago.
The reason I started this blog was to highlight the ever deteriorating job picture and to list smaller layoff announcements that don’t get the attention of the larger main stream media (MSM) outlets. In fact, MSM as a whole does a rather poor job of gathering unemployment information in a single location and it often distorts unemployment statistics. So, I hope to present a clearer picture of unemployment data and present it in a concise and informative manner. I also hope to add pertinent employment information as it appears on the news feeds.
I hope a few of you can use the information from my posts. If you have any suggestions on how this site can better help you, please feel free to let me know at email@example.com
