My husband was laid off in January. Winter is always slow in his industry (construction) but he was in a union, so we thought we were safe. I guess not. He was laid off and has been since then. He's now working a different job making half as much pay and he really, really hates it. I keep telling him to call and ask how work is picking back up and if he could start back up again since it is spring and I know business is getting better. I mean, if he was only working half a week he would make as much as he is now and be back in his desired field and be happy, so why not call and inquire? He keeps saying that it's a union and you just have to wait for the to call you back to work, yadayadayada. I don't see how a simple phone call could hurt, even if they did say work was still too slow, so, at least they know he is itching to come back to work, right? What would you think was best if it was your husband?

My brother has been laid off from the railroad for MONTHS. How it works there is you place bids for open positions. That is what he's been doing every month. He FINALLY went back to work last week.
