We're struggling enough as it is. He's been having problems with this company since Dell sold the building to Ceva logistics and became employed by them instead. They are not nearly as good of an employer as Dell...he has been at this job for 3 and a half years.
The transfer happened August 1st, and ever since they've been telling everyone that they would be laying off half the employees come January, and that whoever stayed would be getting a pay cut because "they get paid too much for what they do." Whatever. Most companies would pay at least $2 an hour more than what my hubby was making for someone with forklift certification.
They've changed overtime policies so that they don't have to give any advance notice "We'll keep you here as long as we need to", and keep screwing with employees' vacation time. We've just been sticking with...at least he has a job, at least he has a decent job with good benefits, for now, just stick with it because so many people don't have jobs at all, and it's so hard to find other jobs right now. Then he gets fired, a week before Christmas. I don't know why yet, I told him we'd talk about it when he got home.
I don't hold out much hope of him being able to find a job that pays as well or better, the way the economy is right now - and because he was LUCKY to get the "permanent" job with Dell in the first place, considering he doesn't even have a GED. In anticipation of being laid off in January, he's already scheduled his test, but it's not until Jan 26th.
I don't hold out much hope of him being able to find another job very quickly. I don't know what we're going to do. *sigh*
Sorry for the rant.
Sorry! Hope things start looking better soon.
