Employers plan to cut Vegas sales jobs?

Friday, December 6th, 2013

The nation’s employers are planning job cuts, and some may be Vegas sales jobs.

According to Challenger, Gray & Christmas, the nation’s employers announced plans to cut 45,730 jobs from their payrolls during the month. That was up 13.5 percent from 40,289 job cuts recorded in September, according to the latest report on monthly job cuts.

Employers have now announced 433,114 job cuts since January 1. That is virtually unchanged (down 0.14 percent) from the 433,725 job cuts announced through ten months of 2012.

At the current pace, annual job cuts are positioned to come in slightly below the 2012 year-end total of 523,362, which was the lowest 12-month figure since 1997, when 434,350 job cuts were tracked by Challenger.
The pharmaceutical industry saw the heaviest job cutting in October, with 10,585 job cuts announced.

According to the report, second to the pharmaceutical industry in October job cuts was the financial sector, which announced 8,717 job cuts during the month. That is the highest monthly total for the sector since February (21,724). For the year, the financial sector has seen the heaviest downsizing activity, by a wide margin. Since January 1, these firms have announced 57,591 job cuts, nearly 10,000 more than the second-ranked health care sector, which has announced layoffs totaling 47,902 so far this year.

Furthermore, improvements in the economy are also pushing interest rates back up, which is curbing demand for refinancing,” noted John A. Challenger, chief executive officer of Challenger, Gray & Christmas.

“Meanwhile, the health care sector continues to experience heavy job cutting in the face of shrinking Medicare reimbursements under the Affordable Care Act as well as federal spending cutbacks imposed by sequestration. Nearly half of the 6,817 health care job cuts announced in October were attributed to ‘cost cutting’ or directly to health reform,” said Challenger.
