Live from the Corner/Joy's of Contracting
Today's kinda a somber day in the corner. We just found out that a bunch of people at my job will be getting laid off. Everyone is whispering in the halls. Basically our department is 2 mill over budget and they need to cut costs. All that means that the "live from the corner" series might be live from my basement in a couple weeks lol. The rumors are that people will be let go based on seniority which is good for me since I've been here like 9 years. But like I told my co-worker "There are things in this world I can control and this is not one of them" so basically I'm coming to work till they tell me not to. When your a contractor you know that your employment is based on someone else's budget. My company has money but the Government doesn't so the contractors are the first to go. It's nothing personal it's all business. I understand that and if they do let me go I'm going right over to the unemployment office to file then I'm hitting monster.com to find a new gig. Till then I'll be right here in the corner working on my resume.
