So much for a rebounding economy. I found out I was getting laid off yesterday and it seems that lots of people are getting laid off around this time as well.
In some cases, no.Originally posted by Spinsah
that's right, chuck. if you gotta go, you might as well take out some windows, some furniture and some people's front teeth while you're at it.Originally posted by Big League Chu
Can't wait to hear what the terrorist will do at the ol' company Christmas party now.
Look out!! The Terrorist will be out
how is that absurd? Did becoming a father improve his employability? did the company as an entity adopt that child and are therefore responsible for the kids financial well being? bottomline is all that matters.Originally posted by K_la
3 years ago my uncle got fired 10 days before christmas and 2 days after having his first child. And he was laid off for cut back reasons... thats absurd!

Bumbaclat <-- just playing devil's advocate. but seriously. your employer doesn't owe you shit.
I remember that layoff, I think it didn't help that the month before there was that huge massive layoff as well. Working the afternoon shift at the time was a blessing in disguise.Originally posted by juice
The worst part about the December 20th layoff was that it was announced a little while before that it was going to happen on that day. So everyone around work was a little on edge, many of the people just didn't buy any presents for people because they weren't sure if they were going to be able to pay for them come January. I know that isn't the best financial way of living but it is a reality for a lot of people.
again, was it the company that had the kid? no. So they wanted to fire him but then he has a kid..... what are they going to do? Keep him around until the kid is 18, then the company CEO can go to the kids graduation, weep openly with pride and then finally fire the Dad?Originally posted by K_la
