Today is the day that people at my husband's company are being laid off.
He works for a publicly traded company.
Last month, they said this office had been spared.
Three weeks ago, they said they did, in fact, have to cut 15%.
Two weeks ago, they told my husband that he was "safe."
Last week, they told everyone that December 3 would be the day they were announced.
Monday, a few people got emails to meet with the HR director and their immediate supervisor at 4:30pm today.
J did NOT get an email. He actually is safe. For now.
It's fairly awful at J's office today. I don't know why they are dragging this process out, and I don't know why they have to layoff people right before the holidays. Except that the 4th quarter is coming to a close.
Of course, Brody is on J's health insurance. If he got laid off, we'd put everyone on my health insurance. But with Brody's pre-existing conditions, I don't know if they would be covered or not.
Which reminds me that I have a stack of bills from two different hospitals from our busy fall of three surgeries and one procedure in 6 weeks.
For now, we are employed. And grateful for it. And sending prayers today to the workers who will be laid off.
