[59542] Fired

I would love to name/shame this company but I guess it's not allowed? Fine.
Retired after 20 years in the Air Force and lucky enough to get a job soon after. Working with this company for 4 years and they decide to can me due to downsizing/realignment. Just wtf am I supposed to do now? Nobody will hire me and I can't survive on this mere pittance of a pension.
"The company was profitable in the fourth quarter but not profitable enough so we're going to have to let you go".

  • It happens to people all the time. What you do now is get another job. Lots of places have to put military applicants at the top of a resume pool, so you're already better off than most people who get laid off.

    And you weren't fired. You were laid off. Apply for unemployment benefits and search for a new job. It's what everyone else in that situation has to do. Man up. People go through this shit every day.
