I Will Be Unemployed As Of July 23, 2010.

Yesterday, I received notice from my boss that my employment will be terminated on July 23, 2010. I work(ed) for a government contractor in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. 2 of my co-workers were also let go due to lack of funding. I am told the contract will have to be reduced by another 35% for the next fiscal year. This is very disturbing as my contract pertains to the environment. I won't go into details about the agency we work for(I'm sure you can guess). I may not be able to see the big picture from the ground but the environment is something we need to protect for future generations! Everything we have on this planet, at this moment, is all we will ever have. Unless we are vigiliant about protecting what we have, preserving what we have, there is no point. My contract was the only enforcement team for the specific branch we worked for. I have sent a letter to the President explaining my predicament. Yes, I will be able to receive unemployment insurance. Fortunately, I have all of my bills paid and only have a car payment. I will eventually find another job and life will go on. It has only been 24 hours since I received the axe and I am still upset about the entire situation. Thanks for reading my rant.

Hi, I am really sorry to here that. Have you got another job in place? Perhaps I could help you? I am an experienced International Headhunter, now working for myself, professionally writing/improving peoples CV either for specific or speculative submissions to companies. Part of my service is also helping people in how to market their skillset and experience to companies. As I am sure you are aware things are tough out there. There are ways and means of making sure you speak with the correct people within companies. <br />
Kind Regards<br />

Apparently, the money was funneled elsewhere or mismanaged! I thought a contract was just that. A binding agreement. Guess not. Us worker bees will have to take one for the team even though the team doesn't care.

But you work for the government dont tell me all that stimulus money is gone, oh wait that was just for new jobs that i cannot seem to find...Obama and his priorities Well atleast it came later than sooner u got 90 somethin weeks of unemployment if that will even cover bills. Wait they are voting today could be 120 how many republicans we need?
