More jobs lost in housing & mortgage fiasco

Yahoo news is reporting that 900 more people are losing their jobs at Countrywide Financial Corp. And that is after the last time they cut some jobs, which were around 500 at that time. That is really horrible. I would hate to be working for them or one of the other companies feeling the housing slump effects. I wonder if they will be getting any kind of severance package? Or maybe it will be something along the lines of 'you were lucky we could pay you this long" instead.

Of course they may be able to get jobs in the microwave popcorn sector helping to remove the lung harming chemical from all the microwave popcorn. After reading this:
ConAgra spokeswoman Stephanie Childs said the change will not affect its popular stovetop popcorn, Jiffy Pop, because it contains natural butter instead of the threatening chemical.

I think, 'note to self, but Jiffy Pop as it has real butter instead of lung deteriorating butter flavored chemicals."
