Hey guys. Thought I would share my pain. My husband and I work in the same building (not the same comp). He just can to me and told me they fired him. No reason given. This after a glowing review 1 month ago and no probs. We were able to ride together everyday, and I was so much less stressed at work because I knew he was right down the hall. We were living paycheck to paycheck...now one of those is gone....THIS STINKS

I hear ya there! They are doing some down sizing at my company as well.. I hear one mechanic is on the chopping block.. Theres only 3 of us.

I am already looking, if I find something the same or better, I'll bug out before they chop. I figure if it's me, I saved my butt, if it's one of the other 2 they want to cut, I'll save their butt..

I'm so sorry to hear that. I hope everything works out but I suggest he hurry up and sign up for unemployment since they make you wait 1 whole week before sending out any benefits.

Thank you so much, all of you for your words of encouragement. I am hoping he is eligible for unemployment. We live in Ohio, and he had only worked in Ky for 12 weeks. So I am not sure how that will play out.

Where did he work before that? If he worked in another state before the 12 weeks, he needs to apply for unemployment in that last state even. I'm assuming he was working prior to this job for at least 6 months. So he would be eligible as long as the current job doesn't give a disqualifying reason for releasing him.

My fiancee moved up here to Wisconsin from Texas and was fired in less than a month. He was able to go and claim 4 months of unemployment from Texas because he was previously employed there for 5 years. Hope this helps.

Yeah, he did work in Ohio for over 3 years. His unemployment claim for that job was approved, but he got the new job in Ky before the first payment. So I will tell him to apply w/ Ohio. Hopefully he won't need the unemployment, and can find something quickly.

I have just been sad that we won't get to ride together anymore. Aside from the savings of $200 a month on gas, it was our only time alone together. I will so miss that...lol.

You're just like myself and fiance, trying to get our alone time when we can. I'm back to working my 60 hrs a week starting next week again. I'm sorry that your family needs to be turned upside down. But sometimes God gives that little poke for a reason. I have a thread posted on here from last year that I was fired 2 days after Christmas. I was sooooo happy about it. I made a lot of money from that deal because the excuse was pregnancy related so it WAS illegal and I got this wonderful job I'm in now that pays me 75% more than what I was making at the company I was fired from.

As for the unemployment, he still has his full allotment left. It also sounds like if he calls and make the claim right away, he may be able to bypass the 1 week hold which is usually for setting up the new accounts since his is already active in that stat. Keep your chin up hun, I'm sure there is something out there just waiting to be found. It may even turn out to be a better fit for your family. /hugs.

I know what you're going through my fiancee got fired this past June. Fortunately, he did really hate that job, so I had kept applying for stuff for him on line. He only ended up collecting one week of unemployment. And he ended up with better job, better hours and a slightly higher pay.

good testimony Magdalen.

I have a friend Dave who collects unemployment every year and takes mostly seasonal work. anyway, he says that most of the time when he applies for benefits, they turn him down, then he appeals and always wins. one would think that unemployment is there to help, but if them suckers can save a dime by weaseling out of it they will. my suggestion is to learn as much as possible about criteria for qualification before going there and filling out the paperwork. if he is turned down, dont go with the flow. Appeal! some employment sectors are unaffected by the slowdown in the economy. some slowdowns will get much worse. i would apply somewhere where there will be a steady paycheck.

I also believe that things happen for a reason. He will get a better job, or something with better career potential, or will benefit in some other way.

Sometimes it's not even the next job. He may have met someone at the old one that will give him an opportunity sometime in the future. But things will work out, I'm sure.

I left a job after one year because the boss was embezelling from his own company. They ended up locking up shop and everyone basically lost their jobs. Most of us knew what he was doing and we were all secretly applying to other jobs as we knew he was going down. I always thought of this as a hiccup in my resume since I had never been at a job for less then 5 years. BUT, it was that very job that put me in contact with the person who referred me to the job I have been at for almost 12 years. Had I not been at that job I would have never been where I am at today in terms of employment and I truely do love my job. :p
