Microsoft After much, much, much speculation, Microsoft let the cat out of the bag today: due to weak results, Microsoft is going to cut 5000 jobs. Those 5000 jobs will disappear over the course of 18 months, with 1400 jobs being cut immediately. Quarterly results, as well as the cost-cutting measures, were made known in a press release today.

and out of 3 suggestions, you decide to rant on one missing the complete point of the post. I'm no union supporter.

I am pretty sure I spent far more time talking about cooperative companies than on unions.

I'd much rather see engineer/scientists focus on employee owned companies and professional associations. The whole point is to empower yourself instead of simply ranting and whining about shareholders.

Here's a hint... do you know why lawyers, accountants... tend to run their own firms instead of simply being worker bees?
