Gotta look at it from different angles.
- New opportunities.
- Resume has another notch in it.
- Experience.
- Room for personal growth.
- A bit of time off.

When I got laid off from my first job as an apprentice I was shocked, I had no idea that the industry I was starting anew in did this on a regular basis, but it made do a lot of research, think about my future, find out what i DIDN'T want in a company, and I learned from it.

It's hard now, I know. But think of it like this, when a dam bursts it's a massive explosion but after a while it turns back into a gentle stream or controlled river, so take control of the situation and make it work for you and your partner.

Not a lot more I can add really other than what can you expect when you work for a multinational multi billion pound profit corperation.

Christmas as they say....

Is cancelled.

Yeppers - Christmas is perfect lay-off time.

Bon Chance.

I am so sorry to hear of this bad news for you guys! I remember when my husband and I both worked at the same place and the company moved. It was devastating! We were both going through health problems at the time too. Now we are both disabled. I see so many people struggling to find jobs these days. Perhaps she could work in a store somewhere or restaurant for now. Maybe she could train for a new career. I don't know how things work outside the US. Here we have temp agencies that help you find employment and the jobs often lead to permanent positions.

I wish you and your partner a world of luck and hope for the very best.

This seems to be typical of big companies. My next door neighbor got the same treatment a few years ago. They seem to think that the festive season will lesson the angry feelings and the person can have a big holiday. The strange thing is the neighbor was Jewish and worked for a Jewish company. But he still celebrated Christmas big time! I won't mention the company as they are well known. Best wishes to you guys.
