Not too much. I’m a “full-time KU employee”, which grants us benefits but not guaranteed hours. When we got new management, hours were cut left and right (one of my coworkers got her hours slashed from 45 hours/week to 12 hours/week!). I didn’t really feel guilty–just lucky that the new boss likes me!

But I also work in a field where there is ALWAYS somewhere hiring (Early Childhood Education), so if you want more hours… You just have to go find a new center!

@Ennie:  I think nobody ever wants to be on the receiving in of being laid off. That said theres always a certain fear that you may very well be next If you’re one of the people left. 

When I was laid off it was very sad, and it was scary but I didn’t have Hugo to work and wonder if today would be the day I got laid off.
