Recession hits home

I just got a call from my mom – her work called her, my uncle, and a few more people in and told them they are doing away with their jobs.  As of today.

They have been given the option to go to another job in the plant, probably for less pay.    They are both over 50, so finding a new career really isn’t an option right now.  The trick is my mom may not be able to do most of those jobs with her health conditions.  She could actually get disability, but really couldn’t take it before, due to her financial situation of supporting her disabled brother.

Oh, and it was my uncle’s birthday today.
