So yesterday at work we all got an email stating we had a meeting with the boss at 4pm. We were all joking around that we were getting raises or we came up w/ theories that some of us were in trouble or getting lectures on being more discreet with our files. Then our boss told us that almost half of our staff was going to be laid off. It shocked me at first that I didn’t know what to think. Then minutes later I realized OMG I might be without a job soon. We’re not sure who’s getting laid off yet. We will find out in a week or so. I have been working at my job for four and half years. I been working for a non-profit since I was 17 and I have not really picture myself doing anything else. I’m heartbroken not only because I’m might be losing my job but my co-workers will too. It’s like my work family will be moving out. I love my job and I love my co-workers. So even if I was not losing my job it hurts to know that I might not be working with some of them.
