The Summer of Wreckage turns to fall…

Children’s Hospitals plans to cut up to 250 jobs – “The provider — with campuses in Minneapolis and St. Paul — said Wednesday the down economy is forcing more children to rely on Medicaid.”

Nearly 400 StarKist Co. cannery workers lose jobs – “StarKist has had to contend with federally mandated minimum wage increases. Butler says other costs are also rising in such areas as utilities and transportation.”

Northrop Grumman announces more layoffs – “The Los Angeles-based company said it would reduce its work staff by 642 at its shipbuilding operations in Pascagoula, Miss., or about 5.8% of the facilities total workforce. That follows a notification earlier this month that it would layoff 300 employees at its facilities in Avondale, La., and Tallulah, La.”

Janitors protest layoffs in LA’s Century City – “Los Angeles police spokesman Richard French said about 300 people rallied outside JP Morgan Chase-owned Century Plaza Thursday afternoon and 13 were arrested for allegedly blocking traffic. He says the arrests were without incident. The custodians and their supporters from SEIU United Service Workers West called on JP Morgan to rehire their cleaning staff.”

Layoffs hit employees at county job center – “A Cumberland County government office that helps people find work is itself laying off eight staff members this fall, and the number might have been higher.”

Meriter: Public program shortfalls force job cuts- “Meriter Hospital said it’s not immune to the tough economy, laying off 57 employees…Meriter said it expects to lose about $57 million in 10 years once Health Care Reform is in place.”

13 States That Just Got Slammed With Massive Layoffs – “We’ve mined through to find the states with the most massive layoff events. A massive layoff event means 50 employees have filed for unemployment within 5-weeks, all from the same company. We’ve also highlighted July’s initial unemployment claims, and examples of layoffs hitting each state.”

10 Leading Retailers Close Stores; Exodus of Small Retailers Amidst Signs of “Free Rent”; 700,000 Drop Cable TV Subscriptions – “Signs of weak consumer discretionary spending are popping up in multiple places.”
