The Bad News Just Keeps Getting Worse

The saying "when it rains, it pours" is an understatement.

Mr Weenie works at Ford (obviously) and the past couple of years the area where he works has seen it's work load get smaller and smaller due to higher ups (with financial stakes in other companies) outsourcing their work.

They just layed off another 20 people where he works (even though they have the work for them). Mr Weenie missed this lay-off by 5 people.

Come late spring they are saying another lay-off will take place, guaranteeing Mr Weenie gets layed off.

Word has it those getting layed off will probably not be coming back.

Which means if I don't find a job very soon we will be up shits creek, Mr Weenie has our health insurance through his job (pretty damn good insurance at that). I can not go without insurance and my medication costs alone would put most people in the poor house.

We could be screwed very soon.

Mr Weenie has a huge adversion to moving out of state, even though 90% of our families live out of state. (it's the whole change thing, he hates change). Moving out of state would be very adventagious to us, he maybe forced to accept change, liking it or not.

That sucks, but sometimes change is very freeing, cleansing. You could stay with family until you get on your feet, maybe...?

This president is going to further cripple our auto industry... I really don't see how they can survive.

I'd love to get out of Cali. We might not have a choice as either.
