My employer just let go 1/3 of our workforce today, which amounts to 7 employees, some of which were good friends. I am grateful and fortunate that I still have my job. They will also be discontinuing our national retail brand and line of products, for which I have spent thousands of hours working over the past 3 years. Our work will now return to focus on our original business – promotional products.
Even though it seems that something like this should be expected with everything that is happening in the economy and world today, it is still quite a shock when it hits so close to home.
Be prepared and count your many blessings, name them one by one.
