Today is Greg's, as well as his entire department's, last day working for LogLogic. We've known this was coming for about six weeks. Not one coworker has found an IT job to move onto during that time, which I find very scary. I can't help but conclude that there is not a whole lot of job opportunities out there. Half of the department is staying on with the company and taking a starting position on a different account (Netgear, where Greg began a couple years ago). The pay cut is substantial, as in $7.00 less an hour. The other half will be getting unemployment. Greg has chosen to stay on. I'm not sure how we will make it financially on so little money, but thankfully, at least we will have insurance for when the baby comes. He also says he will be happier working while looking for a job than staying home and doing so, even though unemployment will pay the same as his new position. I totally agree with his decision and can't help but think what good character he has.
I will be continuing to work at the daycare part time until I deliver and then will have to take six weeks off, unpaid of course. We will be practicing some serious faith in the next few months. Please if any of you hear of an IT job opening send on the information onto us. We appreciate any help.
