    That one you can’t blame on the economy. That one is more related to a change in technology. People with access to the internet and its vast collection of businesses relating to musicians made the local record store obsolete. The core demographic of Atomic Records were young college age people who are very internet savvy and can buy and download their music online.

    Governor Doyle is indicating that about 700 state employees will lose their jobs this coming year, here in Wisconsin.

    In order to facilitate this, the DOA (Department of Administration)hired 83 new state employees earlier this month at startings salaries of $15 to $17 an hour (plus benefits) to process unemployment claims.:huh:

    Apparantly the state does not currently have enough people currently on the payroll to handle the large and ever increasing numbers of people filing for unemployment compensation.:lol:
