There are rumors.
A person in another department was in a room he shouldn’t have been in and overheard a conversation he shouldn’t have heard about my department. He told my co-worker. It has been slowly spreading since.
She told me.
The CFO is visiting next week and will be announcing a restructuring of our department.
They call it “offshore employees.” No word yet on how many are gone or who. It might be everyone, they might keep some.
Bottom line – outsourcing.
HR is in from NY. They have been having long closed door meetings with the head of the department. Two days in a row now. Management keeps having meetings among themselves. We had a department meeting, they acted like everything is normal.
I don’t know when they will make the announcement or how much time I have left. I don’t know if I will be spared. If I am spared, I have no idea how long that will last.
I am on borrowed time.
I will lose my house that I worked so hard to buy and love so much.
I will default on student loans.
I will lose my credit score and ruin any chance of owning another home.
I will be homeless.
This company won’t find me a new job and I don’t even really know where to begin. It isn’t like I have time to take for interviews and there aren’t many positions open in this city. Finance is all being moved offshore. I don’t know what to do now.
I want to be happy.
I want to pay my bills and keep my house and do things that I enjoy.
I want to work less jobs.
Where do I go from here?
How long before it is all gone?
I am still waiting on the official announcement to know more. I don’t know if I have to search, I don’t even know where to look anymore. I have been here for 6 years.
It is all falling apart.
There are rumors.
