When you hear the phrase “March Madness” most individuals instantly think of terms including basketball, brackets, and if you live in Central New York…S.U.

However, there may be a new “Madness” to think about this month….Hiring!

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics also stated that “January 2013 mass layoffs decreased by 181 from December 2012…”.

If these stats continue, our brackets are sure to be winners!
