I can finally say that I am now officially part of the unemployed and hopeless.
As of 1pm today the announcement was made that my company, a large credit provider that sounds a lot like SCAMEX, will be closing down our operating
facility, effective within the next 90 days.
Due to changing demand in the credit and servicing field (i.e. jobs being sent to f***ing Mumbai and Bombay) our center, which has been the backbone
of the community for over 20 years, is now no longer economically viable, and as such no longer required.
Even though this will be the third company that I personally have worked for that has shut its doors, this one is especially difficult to swallow. In
a horrible economic environment where it is already near impossible to find a job with a decent paying wage, especially in my area where I live, this
comes as a death blow for many families who will be impacted horrifically.
I put this into the "people" category, as opposed to the rant section intentionally, because today my heart and my mind are not as focused on my own
grave situation so much as it is on the 3,000 plus people who will be let go. People with children, with mortgages, people who's lives will very soon
be torn apart. I haqte it for the community and for the great people I have known who have been so kind and generous to me.
As of now I am still in shock and I honestly have no idea what is going to happen to me. I dont expect any sympathy or any consolation by writing
this. I am just in a seriously frustrated and upset state of being at the moment and I needed to vent and put this all into words, if for no other
reason, to help myself understand.
Things are about to get a whole lot harder
