Working from data from the California Employment Development Department, the Bay Citizen has worked up a nifty chart of this year's layoffs by county and company.

- IAP World Services
- Sun Microsystems
- BFI Waste Systems
- Service America Corp
- Johnson Controls
- Applied Materials
- Kaiser Foundations
But don't forget, the year's not over yet. A couple of weeks ago Kara Swisher reported that Yahoo! will start laying off about 650 employees on December 13. That's Monday.
That would put the Big Y! into the No. 2 or No. 3 spot on the list...
