In my early years in the Automotive business I was laid off a couple of times, fired once for fighting with another employee but there were never any write ups. They didn't do that much back then. Just made me want to own my own business. Which I eventually did. Had to fire a few but never laid anyone off.

I've been laid off when work was slow. It mostly happens during winter but things usually pick up. The longest I was laid off was about two months. I've never been fired or written up.

I was never fired or written up but I was laid off once. The contract between my employer and the other company expired and they could no longer afford to renew it. I became obsolete.

I was working at a coffee shop near my apartment c: It's a super cute place. I was fired because I was sleepy a lot, but I still did my job really well. I just didn't have a "positive attitude"

Laid off three times, all of them after I passed 50.

I was working in telecommunications and then computers happened and I was out on my ear. It felt pretty bad the first time but after that I got used to it.

But I have a question. Where are all the clamoring conservationists protesting about the endangered professions as the IT age swamps so many of the old jobs?

I'm laid off right now. BC, Canada strives on our oil industry so when there's no oil, pretty much everyone in our town loses their job.

Laid off many times, it's a part of my career in construction. Fired once for doing my job as a union steward, it was reversed and the people that fired me were reprimanded. Verbal warning once, bun never a write up.
