    Unhappy Layoffs - BitterSweet

    With all the layoffs that have been happening - it has left me with bittersweet feelings.

    Bitter to see people I work with lose their jobs..
    Sweet - it wasn't me...

    Just had to share my thoughts for a moment as more and more of my coworkers are being asked to walk out the door....

    It's not easy. At my last job I seen it happen for a year, people getting laid off left and right. And then it was my turn, I was mad at the damn world. I think the same way deh does want two weeks notice when you resigning, deh should give you notice before deh just lay you off.

    And then after you get laid off, and you start looking for a job, it's hard because so many people are also out of work and looking so it's very competitive. No matter how much experience and degrees you have. I was so depressed it took me 10 months to find a job. I have friends that have been unemployed for a year now and all I can do is empathize with them.

    They laid off at least 25 people from my job today. Then they insulted the remaining coworkers intelligence by calling this a "Voluntary Sepration Program". I heard they were walking up to people's desks with a shopping bag telling them they have to leave. It's horrible to see people to lose thier jobs in this shaky economy especially around the holidays.
