Thumbs down Bad News for Us!!!

I got a call yesterday from DH who just got off the phone with his HR Dept & Supervisor. He has be permanantly laid off. I have NO idea what we are going to do since he is the bread winner for our family. He does get his vacation days and 60% of his 401K. It wouldnt be so bad if we had known this was coming. It was a complete shock to us. He said yesterday morning that they had let the temps go at the Company meeting but they never mentioned anything else. No one here is hiring. We have 3 other really good place to work at here that does what he did, but they are on hiring freeze. I hope the economy gets better quickly, or I dont have any idea what we would do.

What does your hubby do for work? Maybe you can find a job somewhere else without moving too far. I hope things turn around soon!
