I have recently found y'all and I am happy to be here. Recent empty nester here and like many, facing a permanent lay off coming on the 19th. The company (call center and production facility) that I had hoped to retire from is outsourcing all but 20 positions to Jamaica. The company has currently laid off/termed over 300 employees in our small town. I am overjoyed for the residents of Montego Bay as my company is paying them WELL over their Minimum wage and I have even recently completed training the two people that will take over my position....
I say all that to say this...Keep your chin up ladies. We will find a way to survive. We have made it this far, right? ♥
We went to college in the 90s, started our careers when cell phones were a luxury that came with a shoulder bag and fax machines were the newest tech.
Here we are now, in what should be the best years of our career facing an ever changing work culture that sees established Boomers still running the show with Millennials expecting to be the next leaders. Meanwhile we just want to take a vacation, make sure the kids get to soccer practice and fund our 401k.
Keep it on topic, be decent humans, no keyboard warriors.
