Layoffs Cause Stress, Trauma, and Health Problems....Duh.

We're funding a lot of research lately, or highlighting past research, that shows there are bad consequences when people get laid off, or lose their jobs.  What a shocker!  I had no idea.

If you think this is really groundbreaking, you can go here, or here, or here, and read all about the startling conclusions.

I wonder when we're going to do a study that shows having no legs makes it hard to walk upright?

Maybe we could make a dent in the federal deficit with the funds that go to research like this.
