Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer Inc. to slash 6,000 jobs

Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer Inc. on Tuesday announced that it would shut down eight manufacturing plants around the world, scale back production at several other sites, and slash 6,000 jobs in total in its ongoing restructuring effort to cut down on payroll expense.

The plants that will close include those in Puerto Rico, Ireland, Virginia, and New York. Operations at several other locations such as Sanford, N.C., and Havant, U.K., will be scaled back.

In a statement, Pfizer’s Manufacturing Director Nat Ricciardi called the job cuts “critical to our efforts to remain competitive.” SOURCE

Mostly North Eastern States and 3 deep South States! How many of these 10 are Blue States and how many are Red States? I can fully see why 4 in 10 Americans say their views are growing more conservative!

Welfare Rolls See Sharp Increase!


The biggest increases are in states with some of the worst jobless rates. Oregon’s count was up 27% in May from a year earlier; South Carolina’s climbed 23% and California’s 10% between March 2009 and March 2008. A few big states that had seen declining welfare caseloads just a few months ago now are seeing increases: New York is up 1.2%, Illinois 3% and Wisconsin 3.9%. Welfare rolls in a few big states, Michigan and New Jersey among them, still are declining.

In South Carolina, for example, the vast majority of welfare funding is being directed to the cash-assistance program, leaving little to actually help people find jobs and get off welfare.

The federal government’s fiscal stimulus includes $5 billion for states where more families receive welfare or spending increases on employment subsidies or short-term emergency assistance. That provision sparked concerns from the Heritage Foundation and other conservative groups that President Barack Obama was undoing the provisions of the 1996 law intended to encourage states to get people off welfare and onto payrolls.
