This Or A Pink Slip

We just got back from a meeting that was all about where OBC is now in the current economic crisis and what the company has to do to keep us afloat.

What they have to do is a 5% pay cut across the board, and no more 401k match. I'm still young, so I can deal without the match in my retirement plan for now, but I'm already struggling to keep bills paid.

And I can barely wrap my mind around poor LDS's situation. Her partner, henceforth called Sqwerl, is currently unemployed, and they have two babies. I worry about how my friends will make this work, even more than I worry about how I will.

But, it's either take a pay cut, or more lay-offs, and therefore no pay at all.
