Who's hiring and who is laying off

In this troubled time it pays to keep an eye on the types of businesses that are shutting their doors and the ones who are hiring.

I take that pulse at dailyjobcuts.com, the website that lists what companies are laying off and which ones are closing for good. They also have a section who is hiring.

The current trend in lay offs is school districts and service industries. The stores that are closing are mostly restaurants, book stores and banks.

The businesses that are hiring is surprisingly manufacturing. I don't know if industries that cater to special occasions are thriving or not. Weddings come to mind and the small businesses that design and make wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses did not appear on the lists of types of businesses closing. The types of businesses that are hiring are alternate energies and technology.
