Yesterday, while at work, they pulled us all off the phones to tell us some lovely news. As Of March 30th, the site is closing thanks to Sprint pulling their contract to outsource somewhere else instead. Not financially viable to keep the site open for one contract to Qwest/Centurylink which employs about 230 people right now.

We're all being laid off. All 450 of us in the site.

Upside is that we'll be getting severance pay (5.17 weeks worth for me) which amounts to about $2,326.50. I'll also be eligible for unemployment after that 5 week waiting period... but still, this is uber shitty.

It sucks to lose a job, especially one you've been at for a while.  No job is safe; doesn't matter what country you live in.  I've heard that about 50 K Marts and Sears are closing throughout the States.  Which pretty much means the only K Mart in Billings will pretty much die this year or next year.  (Hopefully I'll be off that sinking ship when that happens.)

Hopefully you'll have a backup plan before NCO closes on the 30th of March.

That fucking blows.  I'm sorry Lisa.  If you need to talk, feel free to hit me up.  It's one thing to end up unemployed because you leave a job on your own terms, but getting laid off sucks huge monkey balls.    :(

That is indeed eight levels of stinky, and not even like a little stinky. That's like Jenkins fell asleep on your bed, and got stupid all over the pillow stinky!

Lisa shall overcome! *begins a march*
