Others could be doing this in other states too, usefully: The Seattle Times now has up a database of layoff announcements from this year around Washington state.
The list covers layoff announcements of at least 20 jobs each.
The database shows eight such announcements in October, with job cuts upward of 1,700. (Remember that these are are only private and only those done in batches of 20 or more.) November has five such announcements involving somewhat over 600 jobs; but there's time left in the month.
