During the last lay off my place had I lost two friends that I worked side by side with for over ten years.
That really hurt.
As I was watching them drive off another friend said "I don't know what's worse, being layed off or left behind". I said "being left behind, if I was layed off I wouldn't feel so bad".
I know how you feel. My company went from over 1000 employees down to 120. I figure I have about two more years before they close up shop.
