Yesterday Micron Technology announced it will be cutting 2000 people by the end of this summer. Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
I think we've all been trying to stay positive with the recent layoffs, but this one hit us all hard! This morning, I was emceeing a fundraising breakfast for the American Cancer Society downtown - and it was all people could talk about. It's depressing to see our economy and so many good people suffering this way. The good news is, The Idaho Department of Labor will be OPEN extended hours until March 14th to help people find work.
The offices in Boise, Meridian and Caldwell will be open from 7am to 7pm.
Tonight President Barack Obama will address the nation. He'll make the case for his economic agenda and budget. It's at 7pm right here on KTVB.
