PostSubject: Good news and bad news again   Wed Jul 09, 2008 5:08 pm

Earlier this year, I had asked for prayers for my brother, Aaron to get a job here in town. It's an excellent job, and about three minutes from his home. Well, he got the job, as I had told you..........Then, last week, over forty percent of the workers were laid off in his plant. It didn't jeopardize his job, because he's management - but those poor people! Then, just yesterday, over fifty percent of the management workers were laid off - and Aaron made it through safely with his job. What a blessing - but, again......I feel so bad for those who have lost their jobs. Blue So, the good news, is that Aaron still has a wonderful job. The bad news is that my town has lost over 400 jobs.

Wow, that is scary. I'm glad your brother still has his job. I hope the others can find something else soon.

The same thing is happening here too. We lost 2 big factorys in the past 5 years. I pray that your brother will have a job with this company in the future.

Unfortunately, this kind of thing seems to be happening all over. I just wish things would finally start to improve, instead of continually getting worse. I am glad, however, that your brother's job is safe. I know that is a huge relief to him.

It seems everything is unstable in the job market. I don't know where they get the statistic that says the unemployment's rate is going down, but I hear people losing jobs from left to right. It must be a bittersweet feeling for you Savannah. I'm glad that your brother is safe with his job, but for his co-workers I wish I could say the same, but I will pray for their employment. With gas and groceries price rising up, it's a bad time to be unemployed. No

Lord, help those 400! Give them courage and hope, Lord!

It's times like these that I hope to see communities band together and help one another...

Have you all ever thought how the opinion of "charity" has changed through the years? Think of the Ingalls... Pa and Ma didn't want to "be beholden' to anyone for the tiniest neighborly thing. Pride and the definition of it has changed as well... Just thinking out loud here...

Oh, that's so sad. I'm glad for Aaron but yes, this is so awful for the others. I live in fear of this always...my hubby works for At&T and you just never know. There's especially the chance that his job could go overseas. Scares the crud out of me. For now, there's no talk of it, but who knows what lies in the future? These large corporations are understandably really hurting.

It's the same here in Britain too. every other day hundreds of people seem to be losing jobs. Makes you wonder what our kids have to look forward to. Hope Aaron manages to hold on to his job, Savannah.

Oh my gosh, 400 people! That's a lot. I'm glad your brother was able to keep his job, but I feel so bad for all those others and their families. Times are hard...it just seems to get scarier all the time. No
