    Prayer request?

    After New management within company recent manager decided to terminate employment after 13 years of dedicated service...Decreased work and higher paid employee = termination

    please pray for me and my family

    What a lovely Christmas Gift:sad2::embarassed::embarassed::sad2:

    First Time I have ever been terminated from a job and just not sure how to handle it...Very painful...
    I could have probably taken it better if She the Plant Mgr would have done it after Christmas...What a Heartless Woman

    Wow, brother I am truly sorry to hear this. You would have thought that wherever the order came from it could have waited a few more days. Sounds like the large companies in this area. They can let one long term employee go and pay two new people for the same wage. Flat out dirty.:angry: I had a good friend that had this happen to him after almost 20 years with the same company.
    You and your family have my best wishes and prayers.
    Sincerely,
    David

    Prayers to you and yours Paul. The steel mill I work for is also going through changes. They plan on cutting 13% of our workforce after the first of the year, and they say they are not going by seniority, so even people like myself who have been there since the concrete was poured are at risk. I just hope that my work ethic, experience, and job performance carry me through. Good luck to you, hope something comes along for you soon. God bless.

    Sorry to hear of your misfortune that is a heartless thing to do to someone but it allto common in this day and age,it's all about the money not the people who grew the company to where it is.I too went through the very same thing in 2005,sorry again.

    My gosh, Paul. That is terrible! You are right - the timing absolutely sucks. It is really a stab in the back that a company lets a valuable, loyal employee go like that. With your skills and experience, I hope that you find another job soon. Remember that God has a plan for everything. If there is anything Kristen and I can do to help, please let us know.

    Well Paul, I'm right there with ya.. Been laid off a couple months now after 11.5 years.. Luckily, we already Christmas saved plus some cushion heh...

    Don't let it get you down. Look at it as an opportunity to "move on up to the east side".... Kinda strange to go on interviews after all these years. Just keep your head up and ears open and you'll land on your feet...

    Thanks Randy,
    You know it just sucks this close to the holidays everything is closed until after the first of the year...It was more of a personal vendetta than anything...In my opinion
