Probably getting laid off soon... ARGH!

So I work for an HVAC company, been there for a few years now, stuck with them through some bad times, but only ever been laid off once, and that was 2 months after I started with them, and even then it only lasted about 2 weeks. Its been up and down this year, the economy is just not great and this is a sign of that, and the company has severely scaled back. And by that, I mean I'm pretty much the only one left. All winter there were at least 5 more guys working, that I was overseeing, but they have all been given their slips, the last one over a month ago. And now... I think I am next...

GRRR! I have been sitting at home for 2 weeks now when it is supposed to be picking up, we are supposed to be coming into our busy season!

On the homepage the recent posts shortened this to "Probably getting laid..." so I came here with the thought "No way that type of teenage talk would be on here". So curiosity brought me here and afterwards saddened me at your problem. I wish you the best of luck bro if that happens to you, although it probably wouldn't be a bad idea to start sending out some resumes in case it did occur.

Sorry to hear about that man. Times are tough for a lot of people now days. And a lot of companies are suffering cause of that. All though, it doesn't necessarily mean you're getting laid off if everyone else got let go. It might just mean that you'll be really busy now been the only one there. Better than getting laid off if you ask me. In any case, best of luck man. Hang in there.

Thanks for the kind words. Actually been checking out kijiji and there are a few postings on there that might be worth checking out. Its not 100% for sure yet but it is certainly not looking good. A neighbour is part owner of a big landscaping company and he has been talking to me for a couple weeks seeing that we are slow and asking if I would come with him, so I am going to start going a couple days with him until I either know whats going on with my company or find something else. It doesn't pay as well as what I was doing, but at least its some work and I do love being outdoors, so I am grateful for the opportunity.
