Heard In Some Companies This Month: "Happy New Year - You're Fired"

All the bean counters and strategy folks worked hard over the holidays while the rest of us overate. "Rationalization", "belt tightening" and other general bad crap are going to be hitting corporate America over the next few weeks. Here are two actual emails I received this morning:

I can see the belt tightening already.... there will be smoke from the burnt bodies and more...


We got a nice letter from management over the holidays saying we will have a 5% layoff coming up early 2010. Happy New Year!

My guess this is a LOT of this out there....unemployment will NOT be improving this quarter.
