Nope but the company has already gone through the downsizing process. If there was another round the company will be closing. Everyday it seems like 1000+ jobs are lost in the news articles. Very distressing and sad :-(

The company I did work for closed their doors completely. 370 people without jobs. I'm lucky I'm 49 years old and I don't have to work any more. I got lucky and came into a very large amount of money which set me and my wife for life. Thank god for that!

No, I work for a Union. We just beg for more money. Oops, I got to go. My 3 hour lunch break is almost over.
