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.

I think the U.S is a very bad example of how unions work. Just because you guys failed to make them work doesn't mean they don't work in some other place of the world.
But perhaps software engineering isn't a profession in dire need of unions...
