Here we are again in life since I just can't seem to shake what is going to happen.. *pulls out the soapbox*
When you get hired on with a company you are hoping that they are going to provide you with security. As we can all tell that is not something that happens. Last year at this time (Octoberish), I was working for Dell Computers.. *Thank you Michael Dell....* During some of the roughest months to find jobs, I was layed-off.. Yep, just one more time if you missed that LAYED OFF!!! Not just any kind of layed off, but the good kind.
I went to work that day and they had an opening meeting before we got on the floor for our shift. Instead of the shift leader coming out. Our production manager was there and I thought that maybe we won a price and I was smiling like someone put vaseline on my teeth at a pageant. He said, "I'm sorry to inform everyone, but everyone in this room is layed off." Alright, not a problem. I was just lost as to when that was suppose to be happening so that I could go out and get another job.. Yea, he wanted us to get on the floor and finish our shift and then it was over. That whole part of the plant moved to India...
Welcome to this year (Octoberish): I was watching the news and saw that Motorola is doing lay off and I'm staring at my tv in horror as I realize that I'm looking at my job. That is where I work. Over thousand people from all the Motorolas are going to be layed off. Not like that is a big number, but they don't know when. They don't know any more information on it. I sat through a meeting that talked about giving out severance packages to some, but for the most part the whole thing was bullpucky.
[edited by Alicat] *grrrrrr*
I don't know what to do. I can't have a job ready if I don't know when I'm going to lose my job and if I lose my job I know that I won't be perpared for it.
I know that I should be angry, but I think that I'm just more hurt. I know that this happens every year and I know that all companies want cheaper, but what about better, faster and stronger or even better what about reliability?

What now? Especially in such hard times with the affairs of the world. What now?


Farewell my forever friend, may safe journeys in life always lead you home.

I am
You are
We will always be...

Forget about worrying when the current job is going to end. Start hitting the pavement and handing out resumes NOW so that you're three steps ahead of everyone else. Believe me, you'll kick yourself afterwards if you dont'...

Best of luck to you!
