Texas takes the lead

We're jobs lost for the month of July.

U.S. employers announced 85,117 job cuts in July, a 43 percent jump from 59,715 in June, according to Chicago-based outplacement firm Challenger Gray & Christmas, which publishes monthly tallies of job-cut announcements.


Texas saw the most cuts, with 9,593, followed by Massachusetts, with 9,235, and Illinois, with 8,438.

Aw, c'mon, it's not that bad. I mean, any time we rank higher than Mississippi in anything is a victory. Isn't that right, Governor Perry?

Ouch. Texas and Illinois are pretty damn populous, but while not small, Massachusetts isn't in the same league.
