Don't be poor
Don't be poor
I didn’t say Obamacare was responsible for this particular case!
But as I said it is a fact that there are reductions in staff and hours at more than a few businesses.
The fact is that Obamacare does increases the cost of doing business for companies such as SD. There is just no getting around that fact unless you’re stupid…. Obamacare makes staff/hour reductions more likely at many businesses thus making more families poorer and more likely to depend on government assistant programs.
In before the dome.
I don't know if the two correlate, but I saw how much COBRA coverage is....and holy crap! $1200 for a family of three for health, dental, and vision. I know the company gets a better rate than that, but dayum. That is ridiculous.
So I take it you are safe? Did anyone in IT get let go today?
Now I know why my order is always ____ ed up..........
I paid $1,360 for a family of three for one month last year when switching jobs. Had to do it, our 2nd baby was born over the month lapse in coverage before the new job's coverage kicked in.
Edit: want to add that I hope you don't have to worry about COBRA due to not being laid off!! Best of luck to you.
Watch out for your cornhole.
Welp, they just came in and took my immediate supervisor.
Haha. He got advance notice. He was already mid-pilfer by the time I found out.
I saw the same type thing at Goodyear corporate...I worked for corporate but was plant based...on a one week session in Akron working on plant planning when the layoffs were announced...they came into the conference room we were working and snagged two of the six Akron associates I was working with and hauled them to the street....
No advance notice...there was panic in the corporate folks eyes...it was sad...
Good luck to ya....
I've been through the whole layoff thing when I was at Learjet just after 911. To this day I wonder who got the best deal... the ones that got laid off with severance or the poor saps that had to stay, cover the workload, maybe take a cut in pay, and wait until the next round of layoffs...
Man, I'm having the same thought. I'm almost wanting them to just come get it over with and give me the severance so I can move on down the road.
But you are correct, health care costs have been increasing by double digit percentages per year for quite a while now. It's crazy.
Yikes. Sorry to hear the man is snatching people up.
I almost feel bad for the HR people and IT security people who are doing the actual layoffs and locking people's accounts at the correct time. Because with fewer people, they are not as needed. They just get to hang on until the end of the first cuts to know their fate.
Good luck. You're likely safe, because if they were going to fire you, they would have done it before they took your boss.
I feel for you guys... I went through this in the early-to-mid 2000s during the whole telecom/dot-com meltdown. It sucks hard.
It's probably no solace right now, but I can say that every single one of my friends who were laid off ended up in a better situation and are all doing well today.
Well drum are you the new boss or looking for a cardboard box to keep warm?
I told the guy I work with when I saw this and he said "oh yeah - they've been talking about it for a while". So they knew.
I changed jobs five years ago. Had worked at the same place for several years and never listened to head hunters. Got mad one day and one happened to call. Went on the interview and was offered a better job at much better pay. Told my boss and he said they wanted me to stay but couldn't match the offer (big company - could have spent whatever it would take). I told them no - that a complete stranger who had no idea if I'd work out or not was offering me more than the company I had worked for as long as I had and that it made the choice easy and I left.
I'm still there. I'm assuming a very large chunk of the boss' role. Basically anything that doesn't violate SOX will probably be on me now.
