    Sigh...I'm worried silly!

    My husband called me this morning to tell me that 800 employees would be put on paid furlough.  He just called me know to tell me he is one of them.

    Yes, I'm happy its paid furlough, but what is around the corner.  Lay-offs, a new job, a move?

    We have tuition to pay for our daughter.

    Once this hits the news, I'll add the company name, for now, I'll keep it quiet.

    That's tuff. sad   My husbands job was cut back to 32 hrs/week for awhile this winter, after the company laid off all seasonal employment.  The company had no idea if they would make it to spring or not.

    Well, looks like the layoff in inevitable.

    Anyone know of a good head hunter in the States?

    Now I really really need to figure out how to make a few bucks writing.  I've made a whole .10 sad

      Jane, so sorry to hear about your troubles. I've got the names of several good headhunters, but they work in a very specific field. All of the really good headhunters specialize in a certain field. What type of business is hubby in?
