    So Friday on the way home from my husand calls me to tell me that he was permantly laid off!!! We did not see this coming at all! We thought it would be ok cause he has a decent amount of senority but they went by the departments instead of the whole company. He has a lot of people with 10-20years in his department. The thing that really irritated us is he helped a friend get a job there just over a year ago. This guy just switched departments a couple of months ago and he did not get laid off. Great for him but it really bad for us. My husband has been there for 8 years. They tell them they can reapply and basically be rehired if the economy improves. If it is within 6 months they will go back to thier original status with senority and vacation time. GGRRRR When are things going to get better? I guess the good thing is that it did not happen before our wedding. We would have been totally stressed in Jamaica. Also we are keeping our fingers crossed that an even better job with better benefits will come along!

            I'm sorry. My brother was laid off just before Christmas and he ended up finding a better job. Hopefully the same will happen for your DH.
