Sorry to hear that Catch-up. Makes me appreciate my job more.

Does anyone ever wonder if we have surpassed the "be fruitful and multiply" mark? The population keeps growing and jobs are shrinking.

I never wonder. I'm quite certain that mark was passed quite a long time ago.

I dunno about less jobs Con. Some of the problem might be that companies are moving off shore to other countries where wages are lower & human rights don't exist. You're right about the population growth. Octomum is the devil ;) .

I'm sorry for everyone's troubles though.

You all are so sweet! Thank you so much. It was quite a shock - even though it shouldn't have been based on the company's past "re-organization plans". :roll: The pattern seems to be letting go some of the people who have been there the longest, which probably has to do with their salary amounts. It's just one of those kind of places.

However after some deep breaths and more chocolate than I'll admit to, I'm feeling much calmer. I'm choosing to look at this as one of those blessings in disguise things. It was a very stressful job and he was not happy there. He'll get a severance package, excellent recommendations and the opportunity to look for someplace less insane to work. His skill set is such that he shouldn't have a problem finding something else. Now, if I can just manage not to become a crack addict, we should be good. :roll: :D

Just keep swimming...

Sorry about your hubby's job catch-up.... but on the bright side you DO say he wasnt happy there and he has brilliant qualifications to get another... so it sounds like a blessing in disguise. I do so hope his next job is one where he is genuinely valued and happy.

hey WELCOME SERENDIPNIK nice to hear from you. Please dont lurk. We love having fresh opinions.

I dont think its the growth of population/jobs available rate that is the problem... as every country is geared to run its economy on this rate... more people actually MAKE more jobs to service the growth of population. And its a constant arguement as to the optimum rate... you can actually get degrees and more just STUDYING this particular subject. There are always plenty of jobs scrubbing out sh*thouses... in fact most of the certified millionaires in the world are actually in the sanitation field... (not DOING the scrubbing but hiring the people who do the scrubbing). As we in the western world become better educated we expect a higher rate of pay and a more cerebral type of employment. We also expect that we should have wall to wall carpet, annual holidays, two cars, and a home to park them in front of as the basic level of existance. And most of the population believe that you just cannot survive without both people working full hours plus overtime.

In a huge part of the world one would think they have won the lottery if they are allowed to scavenge from a "better" part of the garbage tip.
