    The latest bad employment news...

    By Oshrat Carmiel

    Jan. 17 (Bloomberg) -- At least 21,000 jobs were targeted for elimination yesterday as employers from Hertz Global Holdings Inc. to Advanced Micro Devices Inc. grappled with recession-choked demand.

    More than 20 companies said they were cutting jobs, ranging from Amonil SA, Romania’s second-biggest fertilizer maker, to Fiat SpA’s Magneti Marelli auto-parts division. Hertz, the second-largest U.S. rental-car company, said it will cut more than 4,000 jobs, as businesses and consumers slow travel because of the global recession.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    A gazillion new jobs could be created if he would just keep the printing presses running 24/7. At $200k per job (4 million new jobs at a cost of $800 billion) this will wind up being the biggest boondoggle in history. The first $350 of the TARP money has been a dismal failure.
