  • DH came home this morning and told me as I was walking out the door that his work is...
    1) suspending their contributions to his 401k
    2) not giving out "safety bonuses" ($20 Olive Garden gift cards, etc if nobody has an accident at work for the quarter)
    3) cutting off their holiday turkeys (which cracked me up)
    4) Hinted that many of the companies they supply are going to only working 4 days a week.

    time to initiate all those old work habits and philosophies of the 1930s we used to poo-poo just a couple years ago.

  • Oh and he just told me now he remembered 2 more things:
    1) We have to plan our *summer* vacation now because they're not going to just "let" you take your vacation days. Since they're cutting so much they may not have coverage for you.
    2) They think DH will be on midnights for the next year.

    He is happy to have a job of course but he HATES midnights and is sooooo miserable. He never sleeps well and he's grouchy so often (which my husband is rarely grouchy-- nothing gets him down).

    Well.... I'm glad he has the job too!!! I hope his company is just playing it safe and that's all they have to do!
