Lay-offs update

Not to curse you guys or anything. But I would like to know how many people here were laid off, or are about to be laid off.

I work in the support industry. As long as there are products that fuck up, I have a job.

It seems unlikely for me for this year but if it happens I'll likely feed my own business that I started last year and continue to maintain.

I quit my job long before I could get laid off. I'm one step ahead of the game.

My dad was recently relocated by his company. He was given the choice of moving to a different section of the company or losing his job altogether, he obviously chose to relocated. By him moving his salary he saved around 2.5 jobs in the division he was in.

The company I work for his shutting a plant down in Washington, and has made lay-offs just about everywhere else. My division saw 75 people (out of roughly 500 or so) lose their jobs.

I'm in a pretty secure place right now. It would take a lot for me to be let go.

I was escorted to the door. That is how hostile my job was cut last November.

I know of one other person that just experienced a layoff. His job of 20+ years was just shipped overseas.

I'll be fine for some time. There's still hundreds of people needing Web Development work done, and I can always try to go freelance if I lose my current position.

The place I live sucks for jobs. I haven't been able to find one since I moved here about two years ago. So...

Luckily I have other ways of making money that don't require local jobs.
