    If those CEO's had any confidence in the current administration, they wouldn't be laying off people and would be investing their money. As long as this anti-business administration keeps threatening big business, this trend will continue.

    Both big business and small business are the key to economic growth and the creation of jobs in this country, and as long as the administration threatens to punish them with higher taxes and increased costs for employee health benefits, we will never recover from this economic downturn. See FDR for details.

    Wait. So is it that CEOs don't have any confidence in the administration running the nation? Or is it that investors don't have any confidence in the CEOs running the businesses? Because, let's face it, CEOs and Wall Street haven't been the most deserving of the trust of investors these past few years.

    They were going to "rake in" those millions anyway if the company did well, these lay offs save the company and thus SAVE jobs.

    Watch CNBC or Fox Business and you will understand. Companies have no clue what's coming next from this administration. They won't invest their money in their businesses or expand their workforce when they have no clue how much money this administration is going to make them pay in taxes, via Cap & Trade and Obamacare. As long as this anti-business environment exists, companies are going to continue to sit on their money.

    did you completely miss the point of my post, or are you just typically spouting talking points that mean nothing?

    CEOs lay off thousands, rake in millions

    CEOs lay off thousands, rake in millions - Business - U.S. business - msnbc.com



    When Hewlett-Packardís Chief Executive Mark Hurd resigned last month he received something few regular workers see when they quit their jobs under a cloud: A massive payout.
    Turns out Hurd is far from the only top executive to be rewarded with a rich package despite a management performance that could be considered less than optimal ó especially by rank-and-file workers.
