We had layoffs today. My job is safe, but it really sucks to loose people I've worked with for the past 3 years [sad2]. I understand the reason the company made the decision, but it doesn't make it any easier.....

I feel your pain. We had a couple rounds of layoffs at my work last year and I was very surprised at some people that got let go vs some that were not.

Been there. At a previous employer, I survived one, got laid off in another 8 months later. It sucks harder to get laid off, but surviving is no day at the beach either.

My prescription: 6 oz vinum, pro re nata.

HI;
At least they will get unemployment.
It is the insurance that is the killer $$$
I feel just as bad when my fellow workers get laid off after 20 years.
We got close spending so much time together.
My company in Ct is sending us home 2-3 days a week.
I went in Monday for 2 hours and may be off the rest of the week.
Next step is layoffs.
We are down to 1/3 from 2 years ago and no work to even bid on.
Don't panic. Hopefully this too will pass.
We are here for you;
KK

Thankfully, I've never been laid off. I did however survive a layoff that took out about 70% of the company. It sucked.
