Celebrate! 1,200 less Americans will be "exploited" and "used" by 'Big Corporations'. So instead of wages and health insurance, 1,200 more people can participate in Pelosi-Obama STIMULUS, known as food stamps and unemployment benefits.

1200 LESS taxpayers in that poop-state. Good. As their government pension truly goes to hell....they'll have 1200 less contributors to the treasury. It's too bad for the workers. But, GREAT that it'll hurt the states finances.

"Illinois companies warned in January that they may lay off as many as 1,200 workers in the next two months, according to filings with the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity.

"The Aurora company, which makes workspace products like lockers, partitions and shelving, said it could start layoffs as soon as Feb. 19.

Also in the filing were some pre-reported layoff announcements, including Sun-Times Media, publisher of the Chicago Sun-Times and other papers. It warned that 274 jobs in three suburban locations may be cut as it consolidates those operations into its headquarters in River North.

Several hundred more were also reported to the state from employers including Georgia-Pacific, Best Buy, Walgreens and Kroger Co. due to area location closures."
