With just two weeks to go in the year, the number of job cuts announced by U.S. employers is behind last year's pace, though it's still staggeringly high -- with 490,806 job cuts this year (as of November).

Last month alone, the nation's employers announced plans to cut more than 57,000 positions, only the fourth time this year in which monthly job cuts exceeded 50,000, according to data compiled by employment-services firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas Inc.
