Has anyone dealt with the '2000-hour rule' and was removed when they worked as a contractor for a company?

I am working as a contractor with Siemens through Spherion. My contract cannot be renewed anymore by my department since I am approaching the 2000-hour rule by Siemens. It states that Siemens should not extend the stay of a contractor by more than 2000 working hours. Upon reaching this point, the company should either hire or fire the contractor (layman's terms). My bosses made it clear that they wanted me to stay and have my contract renewed. In terms of hiring me, they admitted that it chances are small since there's currently a hiring freeze rule within the company, although it cannot be ruled out. Should I still hope for the best in terms of my contract being renewed or being hired? Given the scenarios my boss told me, which is more feasible - for my contract to be extended, being hired, or having me fired :( ? NEED HELP, THANKS.
