    I also heard about layoffs from a LandSafe employee but I don't know the extent of the layoff. I just heard they were happening.

    So does that mean the work will be outsourced to India?

    I can confirm. I spoke with a buddy of mine this evening who is a staff appraiser for LS just to catch up. He dropped that one on me. Told me that most of their review staff in his area was let go, along with regional managers, and other higher ups. He said that people who work in his office are a little nervous.
    According to the guy in this article, this is something that we may be seeing more of very shortly, because American businesses aren't even thinking about expanding in today's political climate.

    What happened to the tarp funds? Is this a soft let down or something.
