I'm very sad today because my best friend, Yvette, became a victim of this nightmare, called the economy that we are all in now. She was fired/laid off due to downsizing. She was absolutely shocked and never saw it coming. At 10:30, she was called in the office and given the news, and told to leave. She will not receive any severance pay and will get her last check next Friday. She's a single mom and has a pretty rough time of it already. Why does this seem to happen right at the holidays so much of the time? I guess because it's the end of the year, but still . .
I would think that here in the United States of America working people would be protected from this kind of thing; if nothing else to be given a little notice, or a month's pay. I guess she will be eligible for Unemployment. I hope it starts very soon. She worked for a very small company. Maybe they do this more often that larger companies. Who knows?
Please keep Yvette in your prayers.
I wish you all a wonderful weekend. See you next week.
