And if so when? What industry?
I posted before that I work for the City, so the threat is there. Realistically, I think it's more likely that I get a pay cut or reduced benefits.
DH may lose job, but the immediate concern is lost bonus, which is half salary. (But we don't rely on it).
There will absolutely be lay offs in our industry (Financial Services). 100%. We have seen this movie so many times, we practically know it by heart. Not afraid. It’s just a fact of life. And if it happens so be it. We’ll get other jobs. The most important things can’t be bought anyway. And if it doesn’t happen, then we will continue to stay grateful, to know that it easily could have been us, and to count blessings.
Of course. DH was furloughed for 2 months and I was reduced to 80%. But shockingly we're both back now. But yeah, it can change at any moment
We work in industries that rely on construction.
Already happened. Good times.
Same here. DH has been out of work since March 16 and it’s been rough.
I am. Work for a large nonprofit for 20+ years and had my first semi-bad review last week. Got the feeling I'm being edged out. DH seems pretty secure (insurance).
I was in finance and resigned last year. If I were still employed I would be very concerned
Absolutely. DH works for an agency that handles city contracts. They've been frantically busy dealing with Covid-related stuff, but I foresee it all coming to a stop once the budget gets brutally cut.
And I work in marketing, which always gets headcount cut (since we're seen as cost centers, we don't bring in actual revenue).
Btdt - attorney. furloughed months ago. Had an affair with boss years ago and he’s been trying to get me out ever since. This was his escape valve...terrible shit.
@Anonymous I remember you
@Anonymous you do? What do you remember? You must have been around for a loong time!!!
@Anonymous he went on to seduce other employees - I recommended you get some therapy. I don't mean that in a cruel way, I just felt you were crying out for help and the path you were pursuing was harmful to you. You were very angry with him.
Dh self employed and has brought in zero since February. I took a 20% paycut and am waiting for layoffs. Fashion/sales/retail. It's brutal out there.
sounds like it.
