Lost my job of 6 years this morning...

Kind of bummed, which I'm sure is not much of a surprise. Just needed to vent. They didn't even give me a reason, just that they were "terminating our business relationship." I don't think they HAD a good reason other than that they wanted to pay someone else less to do the same thing... :(

  • I'm sorry to hear that. I thought it was illegal to fire someone without explaination who is not on any type of probation, or there was no agreement in writing saying they were aloud to do so. Look into it!

  • Could you afford to do the job for less? Times are tough, will you be able to find another position?

  • It is just sad because I don't feel that I did anything to deserve this. I worked hard for them for a long time and even built the department I was working in. They are making a TON of money, so I know they can afford to pay me my wages, they just didn't want to.
