Hewlett-Packard said Tuesday it will slash its work force by about 10 percent, the biggest move yet by new Chief Executive Mark Hurd. Read the complete story.

I believe he will be OK. He works harder and smarter than most.
Hope he can still take Friday off.

I saw that on CNN this morning, Bill was he first thing that popped into my head. Whats goin on at HP to justify a 10% workforce slash? Its not like they are having hard times like Nortel (is and was) or failed companies like WorldCom etc.

Sometimes layoffs are a blessing in disguise.
PDad found this out. He landed a much better job in a better location with more $$.
