I know that I shouldn’t worry about something that hasn’t even happened yet but it’s hard not to. My husband graduates in two weeks and he’s been applying for tons of jobs in his chosen career field. A lot of people in his classes have gotten great jobs and he knows that sometime he will get an offer, we just are hoping it’s sooner rather than later of course. We’d really like to know where we’re going to be moving for his job especially so I can start looking for a job (I’m conflicted right now on what I want to do so I figure I’ll see what options are available where he gets a job as far as different schooling or jobs).
I could deal with this for a bit longer because I have a job and he has a job that should give him more hours once he graduates although we’re not sure how many yet (probably not consistently full time if ever full time hours). Last night when I got into work we had a very vague memo. It said that soon they’re going to be cutting hours. It said that sometimes we have extra staff and they’ll try to rotate those staff so everyone wouldn’t work everyday. It wasn’t specific as to whose hours they were going to cut or by how much but we have three people on our shift and we don’t really need three people, it just makes it easier, so I’m anticipating ours will be cut.
My husband and my mom have both told me to not worry until it happens and my husband told me that while he read the memo and it does seem like a good possibility, that we’ll figure it out. I just needed to vent this out because if the cuts are too much, the bills are going to be hard to pay. We could probably just cut back on groceries and definitely things like going out to eat if it’s only small cuts but they were so vague that I have no idea the extent of the cuts. I know I’m still lucky to have a job because some people are just being put on relief staff with no hours. We think that maybe they’re doing it this way to force people to quit so they won’t have to pay severance and so we can’t file for unemployment.
So the plan right now is that I’ll go to the meeting we have next week to hear exactly what’s going on and hopefully get some good news out of that. Plus my husband is spend part of the day tomorrow calling places again to see if they had read his resume and where they were in the process of setting up interviews. I know this is long but he isn’t home yet from his last day of school and I just needed to vent it out. I just hate uncertainty, especially in areas like my job and our finances.
