    In the past 2 days there have been 2 announcements of layoffs locally. What the heck? When is the madness going to stop? * one company laying off 610 employees * another company laying off 700 employees :(

    Argh! It's always when you least expect it. DH comes home from work today and says they have a new manager from the California HQ and he is a real [email protected]$$. Word is he is going to lay off one or more people in the office. He was also asking how much they pay in rent here, like he thought their...

    DH came home on Thursday and told me that it looked like his company would be doing more layoffs today. I have not had a good feeling in my gut about this since he told me. The other layoff announcements have not made me this nervous, but for some reason this one does. His department has...

    There was a meeting at work, and there will be layoffs next week. There is no indication of how many, or who yet. Dh said that in a closed meeting, they are talking non-ticketed staff, support staff, and apprentices are the first to go, as well as any marked troublemakers(they have a few). They...

    Dh's company's terminal here is cutting their drivers and trucks by 2/3(going down to 18 people left with a job!) . Dh is safe this round since it went by senority and he is number 5 but his supervisor says it looks like the company (based in another state) may pull out of the local terminal all...
  9. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    There is speculation, purely speculation that the company dh works for might have some layoffs in the future. Ironically, this is due to the strong Canadian $$. I never realized that it would cause a problem :( Just because the dollar is stong doesn't mean that the cost of living goes down...

    I am a little creeped out today. Dh just called and told me his company laid off everyone working 2nd and 3rd shift. It came as a shock to most of them they had no idea the company was in trouble. Dh is safe for now and is 2nd in seniority. We have seen this before in the last recession. Dh is...
