Let's make it fun for the cheap seats and note that the local "mainstream news" is leaving out an important and potentially devastating component of this story.
TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! THE CERNER BUYOUT GUARANTEES MASSIVE JOB CUTS FROM KANSAS CITY'S LARGEST EMPLOYER!!! ONLY IDIOTS & LIARS CLAIM OTHERWISE!!!
A bit of Christmas cheer . . .
The company is notorious for slash & burn tactics.
Don't believe me?
Just talk to anyone who remembers their gutting of Sun Microsystems -- And those were white collar tech jobs held by SKILLED & ELITE workers -- Now most of that work is done overseas for less than half price.
It's not going to be pretty.
In fact . . .
It's going to be a bloodbath and Kansas City MSM isn't doing their job if they claim otherwise.
Accordingly, here's the confirmation of news we already reported . . .
Cerner is Kansas City's largest private employer. It was founded in 1979 and grew to employ nearly 30,000 employees around the world, including more than 13,000 people in the Kansas City area.
Cerner developed digital information systems used by hospitals and health systems. The company said their programs allow doctors and hospitals to provide better care to patients and better information to communities.
“Cerner has been a leader in helping digitize medical care and now it’s time to realize the real promise of that work with the care delivery tools that get information to the right caregivers at the right time,” David Feinberg, President and Chief Executive Officer, Cerner, said. “Joining Oracle as a dedicated Industry Business Unit provides an unprecedented opportunity to accelerate our work modernizing electronic health records, improving the caregiver experience, and enabling more connected, high-quality and efficient patient care."
Now . . .
We notice a great many hipsters and clueless millennial d-bags trying to downplay the acquisition. They badmouth the Cerner legacy and mention all of the taxpayer subsidy the corporation received. That might be true . . . However . . .
THE IMPACT OF MASSIVE LAYOFFS FOR KANSAS CITY'S BIGGEST PRIVATE EMPLOYER THREATENS THE METRO ECONOMY!!!
Again, all we've got for reassurance (lulz) are empty promises from a company that has already shipped jobs to India by the MILLIONS.
