I had to jump ship. The company I was working for kept laying people off, then bring them back, then laying them off... :roll: I had my hours cut back a few times, had to change sites, etc. I decided I couldn't risk it anymore and took a menial, low paying job at a University with more job security. I mean, the University isn't going out of business. Other than the University, the job market around here is bleak. At my old job we would post for entry-level workers at $8/hr and get 100+ applications because there were so few places hiring. So I never actually got laid off, but I've managed to end up in a menial, low-paying, dead-end job just for the security of HAVING a job. Got a family to feed and a mortgage to pay off, so the possibility of getting laid off was keeping me up at night.

Besides, with all the crap-ass increases in our medical coverage at my old job I'm bringing home about as much now despite the pay cut in saving from the better medical plan at my new job. So it looks bad on the tax form, but the bank account is about the same. Now if I could just do something about the "dead end" part... :?
