Update on Layoffs

Well, my work week is almost over. Monday is my Friday. I am so glad this week is over. It has been a very stressful time for all of us at work. The good news is it looks like I made the cut. I am very thankful to still have a job!

The bad news is about 70 dealers lost their jobs over the last 3 days. Horseshoe has been opened almost 14 years. Some of the ones that were laid off were day 1 employees. I know of at least 3 couples that were let go. One is pregnant.

The criteria the company used was honestly about as fair as they could be. They did offer some of the dealers a part time position. They also agreed to pay their benefits as though they were full time employees until the end of the year. It was really heartbreaking to see security guards escorting your fellow employees off property.

I really appreciate all the prayers and kind words from all of you. This has been a hard week and I am finally able to get some sleep so I am going to bed. 'night all.
