F-ing corporate pigs

The company my husband works for is about to make massive job cuts. I bought a lottery ticket tonight. I have a better chance of winning the lottery than he does in finding a job that won't get outsourced. The way things are going, the only jobs that are going to be left for Americans will be at Walmart. Then again I'm sure they'll find a way to outsource those jobs too....sighh.

I'm sorry. And you are right, they are outsourcing everything these days and I think it is a very bad thing. The jobs should stay here.

Ouch! That's sucky -- do you know for sure if his job will be cut?

Good luck with the lottery!

We won't know anything for the next few days. Sux

Let me know how it turns out. The title to your post says it all, in my opinion. As I said in my post on the same topic, there must be a special place in hell.


Peace,

Hopefully he doesn't get cut, but also hopefully he's not around when one of the people who DID get cut comes in and starts shooting.

Chani-I know! I know! Greedy bastards!

Oh Des!-You're so funny!

Hey, if he does get laid off, you can send him over here. We'll play the Nintendo Wii together and be unemployed but entertained.

Damned shame what's happening in our capitalistic world. Of course, since it is greed that drives capitalism, what else can we expect?

MsLittlePea said...

Exactly

I am thinking of you both and thinking good thought and really wishing all works out well

anne said...

I'm very sorry. This kind of thing is very stressful, for lots of reasons. My job runs out of funding in October, and I know it won't be easy to find a new job.

I wish you and your husband the best - sometimes things do have a way of working out.

MsLittlePea said...

Thanks hel and anne! Yeah it's a stressful thing but I'm trying to be positive. We'll be ok no matter what happens it just not fun.
