Acxiom layoffs

About 200 pushed out today; 100 in Arkansas. People in the data transfer stuff, a step below programmers, mostly.

Sick about this

A wonderful person, who has been at Acxiom almost 30 years, was among those who lost a job. This person is so sad. What a blow.

I bet Jaime Gates and CDC

I bet Jaime Gates and CDC will celebrate likes its New Year when Axciom hires 50 back after laying off 200, that is a win in their skewed economic sense, just look at HP.

Conway can no longer depend on Acxiom!

And shouldn't we all ache...just a bit?

One of Conway's economic anchors, a workforce supplier of above-average salaries, a home-grown company that has contributed so much to Conway's family & financial growth for decades...now nothing more than an un-medicated ulcer to the once-intellectual and technological gut of our great city and state.

The blood bath seems to be an annual event - our greater-Conway area families no longer respected. Yes, there are many still prosperous within Acxiom. But unfortunately, some of those making the hard decisions shelter themselves and their cronies, thus forcing others to the unemployment line. But is this Conway pride? Or, is it just blind corporate obedience? Does Acxiom care about Conway any more?

Will there be a job fair, dedicated to Acxiom? Will HP, and others, look to absorb all the Conway Acxiom-ites? Does anyone really care?

Do the Conway city leaders consider all these no-longer-available salaries, as they pander to outsider shopping center developers?

Who will pay for what, and how? Acxiom is leaving Conway. That has to be a serious economic blow...no?
