Without any context, and other numbers associated with those companies, there is no real way to evaluate that list as being valid for discussion.

Those are the numbers for top job losers. Where is the list of top job destroyers?

Also, is there some context? Time frame?

1. The Government
2. Unions
3. Highcost/low quality products (oh, wait, I already listed Unions and the Government).

Sorry, there aren't 10 different things that are job destroyers, just socialist (Liberals, progressives, socialist, communist, i.e. the left) and unions (also socialist, just not in the government).

Companies laying off workers are not "job destroyers". What an idiotic thing to say. :roll:

Not surprisingly, these are also companies that leftists hate, and want to see dissolved (yet humorously never think of them as actual "employers" to hundreds of thousands of people).
