    This is what happens in Obama's America

    Now how are you going to say that? Almost every job in the video game industry, especially with EA and Activision, are subjected to a contractual basis. A company is not going to keep employees when they have no work for them to do.

    They have no work to do because fewer people are buying and playing videogames. It IS a symptom of a contracting economy, just as much, if not more a reason than just Activision's management.

    Ventanger, Ill remind you, however, that these layoffs were not the result of poor sales. So your idea that Activisions actions in this case are the result of a poor economy are wrong.

    It laid them off because revenue wasn't lining up with cost. That's an economic reason.

    But not in the way that you are insinuating. It is from not wanting to spend money to retain employees who have nothing significant to work on, not from economic policies. As I said, you would be right if it stemmed from lack of video games sales, but that remains to be seen. . What activision is doing is a standard practice, every business does it. You won't find one that does otherwise.
