6:17 am
the result of that pivot. not because the economy is slowing. it's obviously no consolation to the family's affected. analysts, at the challenger grey christmas say, yes, it would be wrong to assume increased job cuts are a sign of week insiakn here comes the but, maybe. intel is pivoting, but maybe the loss of good jobs will trick him down. this is something we talked about before. how dependent the city of san francisco, in particular, on the luxury economy the door dashers and the washios and the delivery-type companies. these thrive when people have big paying jobs. they'd rather pay than pick up their food or laundry. i don't think 12,000 jobs will change that. but i do worry, sam, lawyer remarks some of the second trench industries, who ung they can survive if there is that next dip. so, again, i don't think this is a sign of a bigger this inc. to come. i think we're getting close,
