  1. Financial hardship
    I checked my phone this morning and I had an email that let me know the alarm at the house was off, so I call DH. "Where are you?" "I'm at home." "But why?" "I'll tell you when you get home." So I walk in the front door and ask him what the story was. It turns out he got laid off as of this...
  2. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    My husband knows his job will end in June 2013. He's 60 and the chances of him getting anything else in his field are slim to none, even part-time teaching (academic). My job ends June 2012 and I'm going back to school for 8 months to get a teaching certificate and take over as the main...

    husband finds out this morning, oh yeah oops forgot to tell you, you're back on layoff. nice. thanks for the heads up. now the layoff itself isn't a huge surprise, the masonry industry is still pretty fickle, but the fact that neither his foreman nor anyone higher up bothered to call? if he...

    I was told today that I will be layed off in the next two months. I'm sooo sad and scared. My question is, do I go ahead and wait till it happens - take the severance pay and then take a lower paying job? I know that there are not any jobs in my field. I have been looking and will continue...

    A recent budget cut was passed eliminate a certain type of program that gives funding to parents to help with child care. This really affects many centers in Ohio and mine is one of them.

    Well my son-in-law was laid off from his job yesterday, guess the company thought they could save a few bucks by hiring in a new guy for less pay. Not that they were paying him much anyway, but they hired the new guy for $8.00 an hr & were paying him $12. He'd been there for almost 5 years &...

  11. Financial hardship
    Yesterday when DH got to work, rumors were flying that his company was getting ready to make some cuts. The rumor was that they were going to be laying off 3 guys. Well, this sent Dh into panic mode, because he is in the bottom 3 as far as seniority goes, so since they are union, if the make...
