    300 BlackBerry employees have one less thing to be thankful for this Canadian Thanksgiving weekend...their livelihoods.

    BlackBerry lays off 300 head-office employees as part of cost-cutting | CTV News

    Amazingly, that represents only 7% of the total number of BlackBerry employees slated to lose their jobs by next summer.

    These employees can al least be thankful that the Sword of Damocles no longer hangs over their heads. I've been in their situation before and know how it feels.

    It's always rough to see cutbacks, but the vast majority of these laid-off workers will have better, more stable jobs in a matter of months. Many were likely lining up prospects for weeks and months already.

    Waterloo has a very healthy tech sector outside of BB. There's more work there.
