I called my absolutely *favorite* vendor yesterday to check on a detail; found out she had been laid off just the day before and her company may not survive this "economic turndown". i was heartbroken for her, especially considering she had lost her house a few months ago, had brought her family to live iwth her brother, and then bought a town house just last month!!
we gotta take care of each other. seriously.
I haven't been laid off yet, but I am not out of the woods yet. They are trying to avoid layoffs, but the dept of public health has been hit HARD. For now I'm grateful that I still have a job, and that my boyfriend's pay was only cut 10%.
