nobody's losing their jobs ? actually i know lots of people who lost the jobs that they have been busting their butts at for 20+ yrs because the
company could no longer afford to make payroll or some other financial reason
not making this up , just saying what i have witnessed as have so many others
me myself , im fortunate enough to have a job but now my hours resemble that of a part-time job more than anything ..... im in the housing industry
and nobody can afford to buy homes like they used to so insead of making ok $ @ 40h a week , i make minimum wage type $ on 20-25h a week.
Without any type of previous notice given and of course before all this started happening i got a shiny new car a few months before because i was in
no way expecting the economy to crash so now im struggling to stay afloat.
now im stuck with a decision that i didn't want to make which is deal with these hard times and hope they end(which im not to hopeful about) or look
for another job which a good one is hard to come by nowadays.
4 years wasted at a company but i feel even worse for the people who wasted 10 or 20 years only to be told to take a hike.
on a final note , always try to be compassionate and not kick people when they are down , even though you may not understand someone's situation or
possibly you don't agree with it doesn't mean you should look down on those individuals in any way ..... one day you could be in their shoes
empathize and pray for them and hope that one day we can all be equals again
