Jobs, Employment, Thanksgiving and Friday Random Thoughts

Thanksgiving in Canada

Just remember that the financial markets are closed on Monday but not in the U.S., if you have anything you need done, better get it done today folks. I have heard people theorize that 24 hour 365 days a year banking is coming (in that transactions would truly be instantaneous any time of the day or year), but I am not sure if it is a good idea or not. I have caught myself writing cheques that I know won’t clear until after my pay cheque, so I am just as guilty as the next person.

Unemployment in Canada Below 6%

For the first time since 1974 the unemployment in Canada is below 6%.

Lots of interesting numbers over at Stats Canada that break the employment figures down very nicely, go look where you might fit!

Hope it was a good song

So one of the first music downloading cases has gone through the court system with the downloader being fined $220,000, now that is an expensive tune!

RIM Keeps Rocketing

I keep thinking the bubble HAS to burst for Research in Motion, which just goes to show how little I know about investing.

Revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2008 was $1.37 billion, up 27% from $1.08 billion in the previous quarter and up 108% from $658.5 million in the same quarter of last year.

Revenue up 100% from this time last year? Ur um, I guess that’s good? Holy Crap! What are all you Crackberry addicts doing? I still have no money in RIM, but now I just feel stupid for not.

Enjoy the Long Weekend

Remember it’s supposed to be a holiday folks! Watch this space for possibly the greatest Turkey story ever (not written by me).
