Corporate citizenship

I found a pretty good article about "Corporate citizenship." A Corporate citizenship is a CFO, CEO that opts not to have a layoff or downsizing because they care for their employees.

The article explains why layoffs are an essential component to a free economy and the roll a government plays in the unemployment.

I would highly recommend reading this article:

Trouble in the Support Group

495nsg in Trouble
In 2002 a Networking support group was created for people that were unemployed in the area around 495 in Massachusetts. The group orginal goal was to offer job search support and to bring guest speakers to talk about how to get a job.

By the summer of 2003, the support group started to loose its steam. Many people were fustrated with the political rambling between volunteers that were running the group and membership started to fall off.

Currently on the mail server there is word that the officers never approved the bylaws and an election that was supposed to happen on the 21st of this month will not occur.

I would highly recomend that if your looking for a support group in the Boston area to consider Wind Networking. This is a group that is run by career professionals who are focus on the job market and not the polical issues of running the organization.

Employment Growth Soon

Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan had some positive things to say about the economy in a speech this morning to the Securities Industry Association. He appears pretty optimistic about the growth in the economy and how low inventories will lead to increase employment.

I personally think that the Federal Reserve made a mistake back in November 2000 by not lowering the short-term interest rate. I believe this was because the Presidental election recount was a distraction. Had they lower the rate early enough the recession would have been much shorter.

A Year Later

It was one year ago that I was laid off from my job in San Jose California.

I was working at the company for 6 years. Today the company is a fraction of the size it once was.
