Poll: Do you personally know someone who was laid off from their job? What was their profession?
With the world basically being in a recession, I have personally seen stores closing (4 stores in my town that have been here forever), factorys and offices are laying people off, and everyone is cleaning house and firing workers that they should have a long time ago? Have you or someone you know been terminated or laid off from your job? What was your profession? Do your or that person you know that has lost their job know what they are going to do next about finding another job?

My brother was laid off from his job with a title insurance company, which is related to real estate and the mortgage industry. He is 50 and has worked there since he was a senior in high school. My son was laid off from his job as a car salesman. They have no idea what they will do now.

My husband is a licensed plumber and got laid off. He got a job the next day as a pipe-fitter and has been there ever since making better money with more hours. It's actually worked to our benefit. Score one for the little guy!
