    Because corporations are using the bad situation to their advantage. Companies are laying people off because then they can scare their other workers into working harder for less while pocketing the savings on the laid off workers' wages and salaries. It is a jump on the bandwagon, more short term profit making stupidity from corporations.

    Yeah, people work harder but they don't spend money because they think they are next, and the laid off workers don't spend because they are laid off. Who is going to buy your freaking products and services if no one has a job?

    There should be a law that companies cannot lay off these huge blocks of people unless they have reported losses equal to the percentage of layoffs.

    People are not buying

    They are frantically trying to get their debt down.

    The reason was brought on, in a large part, because of our over consumption, instant gratification society, a lot of bad debt, a government and money system that encourages people to be in debt, and a money supply that runs on 100% debt.

    Then there is our two budget busting wars and our over militarization of the planet by having our military presence in well over 100 counties.

    All of this can be blamed on our politicians, no matter what party, what idiology they claim, they simply did not have the balls to admit they are screwing up, but simply played the game of keeping their heads stuffed in each other azzzes.

    While that is an oversimplification, it gives you a good indication of why were are such dire straights.

    Peace

    Source(s): do not listen to the ones blaming one ideology or party over another. The blame rest squarely on the shoulders of every politician that sits in our capital.

    Because the US is in a very bad recession right now. Consumers are not spending $$$, so alot of businesses are losing $$$, which in turns leaves them without the need or $$$ to pay for more workers than necessary, which in turn leads to many jobs being cut.

    It is a scary situation. Everyone is worried about losing their job right now.

    Because the average person pays over 25% of every dollar they earn straight back to the federal, state, and local governments.

    That is one quarter of the money that could be spent on food, investments, job creation, and health care.

    Companies are laying off workers because they're losing money and can't afford to pay so many workers.

    If you think things are bad now, just wait until the spending plan goes through.
