How were companies in Midwest affected during last recession compared to tech hubs? Were they insulated and were there less layoffs?

Chicago is in the midwest, and also a tech hub.

Not going to engage you on this. All depends on what market segments and industries, but its in bad taste to categorize companies/regions so broadly like that.

This question is a joke, right? Recession was a disaster in the midwest. We had to bail out GM and Chrysler. Unemployment was like 13-18%.

Everyone - I studied at a University in Midwest. I don't hate the Midwest. I was just curious. Anyway, there's no option to delete this post now, so please ignore it.

I read to the kids a book that ended with a line like, "If it was a good story, start all over."I told the kids I really only did that once in my life regarding a book about a teacher going to teach in Africa. In reality it was about a missionary. I hid the name of it and what it really was about. In other instances I've also explained the meaning of life is to love sacrificialy without telling them the source. I feel guilty hiding the Truth. How do you speak the Truth without being fired?

Hey Everyone! I’ve unfortunately just got laid off from my company. This is my second time in 5 months getting laid off due to budget cuts. Quite frankly, I’m drained and in need of leads.
