I am thankful that I have a job.
This morning I received an invite for a noon meeting upstairs. I didn't think anything of it. I thought it was going to be a team lunch. It wasn't.
At noon they announced that there would be a RIF. A reduction in workforce. That's right folks. They were letting people go. Today.
Thankfully, the folks in MY meeting were all the "safe" people.
The folks who were being asked to leave were in a different room.
It was a very somber afternoon in the office.
