Yeh it's not just Avid either. A lot of companies are making cuts.

EA, THQ. The economy's just not good at the moment.

I feel for the people who are looking for employment at this point in time cuz the job market really isn't good.

Yep, I know some people at EA that just got laid off last Friday. No notice and no severance. Friday was their last day, period.

I feel pretty lucky to live here as this province is fairly isolated from most of the economic happenings right now and instead plunging the economy here is growing. I'm glad I never left like many did back when Saskatchewan was a have not province.

I feel for everyone who will end up without a job as a result of all this stuff though. I guess that's what we have UI for.
