Well It's like a funeral parlor here at the office. Yesterday we had a "spontaneous" 15 minute staff meeting where we were told that the company is suffering financially because of the economy. Due to this, they said that the executives had taken 15-20% pay cuts, some people would be laid off and others would have their hours reduced.
So, at the end of the day yesterday, 2 people were terminated and 4 were put on reduced hours. The people who were laid off got absolutely nothing. All the people who had their hours cut are women; 2 of which are pregnant and the third had a miscarriage a couple of months ago and has just started trying again, and the other just had a baby. Sounds a little fishy for it to be them, if you know what I mean.
Needless to say, it's very quite and somber around here. I have been asured that my position is vital and will not have any cuts but I can't help but wonder what's going to happen.
Then when I got home we got a notice in the mail from our landlord's mortgage company. Evidently he hasn't been paying his mortgage and according to the original amount of the loan and the amount currently due, he's only paid $640.00 which is ridiculous since we pay him $850.00 in rent each month! If he doesn't make payment arrangement by August 12th then they will proceed to seize the property.
So, hubby and I are now trying to find a place to live and we have no clue how we are going to come up with the money. Since you have to have 2 months rent up front and considering our landlord's financial circumstances, I don't think he is going to give us back our deposit.
Basically, I have a lot on my mind today
