Employment situation

Recommended Posts

Please say a prayer for my wife Lisa, who was informed today that her position at work is being eliminated. We'll be looking for something else, of course, but things may be a bit tight in the interim.

Good luck to her and your family. I'll add your family to the list.

Lisa, you and family are on the list here John. I'll say a few words with higher about this being a move up for you guys. 

As a side note; I can't tell you how I felt when I saw you posting in this section. I'm HUGELY relieved to hear it's just a layoff instead of the possibilities that ran through my head. You scared heck out of me buddy.

You and Lisa are on the list. 

Looking for work and finding the right job is never easy. Have her apply the TPAAAT for jobs. Personal business cards are a good way to start that process.

I've heard of so many people talk of just such a "blow" in their life..............that actually turned into the "best thing that ever happened because had it not been for................."  My Dad was the best example I know of.  Long story, but he was let go from BF Goodrich because of a company "turn down".  Went from a measly monthly paycheck to starting his own business and eventually becoming a multi-millionaire.  It took 25 years of hard work, but "had it not been".

Here's hoping it's that good for your wife, JHCC.

Cedar  Crest is correct. My new job is light years ahead of my last one.

JHCC, what type of work does your wife do?

Any updates on the employment situations posted on this thread? It's been awhile since anyone has posted. I've been there several times and it's not a good feeling. 

Regards,

Laynne

Lisa’s still looking. There’s one opportunity that came up that looked good, but turned out to have required her to work with the people who fired her in the first place. 

She’s starting to think that this might be a good opportunity for her to start that yarn store she’s been thinking about, although startup capital might be a challenge.

I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. Maybe that is the reason. Tell her to keep her chin up.

Thomas, in one of your posts you mentioned "moving North". How far North?

Not very; we bought a house when I was working at my previous job in Socorro NM---even paid it off!  Then when I got a job in Mexico; I rented a small place near the border (close to where NM, TX and MX touch at El Paso.)  Being laid off from that job I'm trying to move back "home".  6 years can be a lot of stuff. Anyway it's about 200 miles mainly north. Cooler; but mainly due to altitude.

The load last Saturday was 2 book cases and 20 boxes of books.  My wife says the house is jammed full and I should do some shop loads, so tomorrow it's 2 anvils, 2 stands, 3 postvises + 1 portable stand and as many cat litter buckets of tools as will fit! Great fun in a small 4 banger pickup with a cap! (Only run the AC when going downhill!)

Gotcha. I don't envy you with that job. That being said, if I were close enough I would lend a hand.

This morning was 2 anvils, a solid anvil stand (mining timber), 7 kitty litter buckets of tools, 3 postvises and one portable stands, my large stake anvil and stand, a short cone mandrel, some project materials and a couple of milk crates of natural fiber rope.---Going to leave at dawn tomorrow and try to get that load up the road before the temps reach triple digits---no AC with a load like that!  I know two people who have blown their vehicle's head gaskets on hills out here this summer. I loaded most of it before breakfast---it was 86 degrees at 9 am.
