I got word earlier this week that another
action was taken because of the drop in
The remaining crew has been cut back to
a four day work week.
I'm not panicking because they had to go
through the same thing last summer.
A large portion of this company's customers
are in Europe. If you are familiar with some
of the European work customs, you know
that many businesses close for a month or
two in the summer and everyone goes on
"holiday". That, of course, affects any other
business that they deal with anywhere.
By August of last year, my employer had everyone
working full-time again and needed to hire a
few additional people. Enter myself and five others.
I believe (and am hoping) that this pattern will repeat
this year. No guarantees, of course.
I'm still looking at other jobs but there really isn't
much difference in the job market now than what it
was in 2009 and 2010. At least not in Central Florida.
Sorry if I'm boring ya'll. Even though I'm not really
wallowing in some deep emotional pit, I'm not
exactly doing a happy dance, either. Been contemplating
all my options.
In better news... I've been invited to dinner with friends
tomorrow to a new (to me) restaurant.
If I remember to take the camera, perhaps there will
be some worthwhile photos.
My brain just isn't right for creativity at the moment.
