Since I promised an update

att-workers-picket   Well he received his surplus letter today which means he has 60 days in the company and then he will receive his severance. SO yes he was laid off. Fortunately it doesn’t mean the same for us as it does for some others in this country. He will receive a paycheck until the 60 days are up then we are on our own.

A couple things just because I have been fuming for a while and there is no where else to vent… my mom has heard it all so there’s no one else to bitch too. #1 His director was supposed to place his name into a reassignable pool back in December but he never did that (this happened to the whole group) #2 He rescheduled the conference call for today twice. The whole company is going to crap. There are several things that were supposed to happen to help JT but not a single one happened. Just ridiculous but there isn’t anything we can do. Now we just look forward in the next 60 days and hopefully he will find something.

Thanks to everyone for keeping in touch and wondering how we are doing. We’re tired. We’re worn out. The inevitable has happened and I thought I would feel different but I don’t. I’m not sure what else to say… thanks again everyone. Oh if you want to read his own words on the situation you can check him out here.
