Yesterday, when my husband, Velo came home, he told me that his company will be closing its doors from December 12th thru January 12th. I was in shock, I think he still is as well.
He works as an electrician for a robotics company that make the auto assembly lines for the Big 3, but just last week he told me that they were doing fine and had jobs lined up for a long time to come...but out of the blue, or perhaps not, GM canceled a job with his company, so to compensate, his company had to make the tough decision to close for a month to save costs.
We have been married for 17 years and they have never closed their doors, so it just does not give me a good feeling about the future, either.
Of course I am bummed because Christmas is just around the corner, too. It's never a good time to get laid off, but it's especially hard this time of year. I feel so let down, by the head of the Big 3, the president and our government in general. It's just not a good feeling, especially when you are a parent.
Well, sorry for such a somber post, but it is what is on my mind today and probably for some time to come, so it just helps to write about it, I guess.
Take good care all...and if you have a friend in Michigan or in the automotive field, give them a call and see how they are doing, I know they would appreciate it.
