    I found out the chemical plant were at is terminating the contract of the environmental company I'm with. Myself and Sundewguy are suppose to remain on with a new co., but nothing is ever certain. I've not heard anything about the new co. and we only have a week left.

    I know how you feel..
    I work at Kodak, and with the rise in digital and the rapid decline of film, Kodak is having layoffs about every other week..
    so far I have dodged the bullet about 10 times, but there is always "next time" forever looming on the horizon..its just a way of life now.
    good luck! let us know how it goes!

    Thanks I will. Funny I use to be an operator at Southwest Chemicals-now "polyone", and we use to make the black plastic for film caseing and disposable cameras for kodak. We also made grey plastic pellets that they said were for the under layer of the film. I was wondering how digital cameras would affect film cos. but from what you said it sounds like polyone isn't producing much any more. It's just one big vicious cycle.

    Its a terrible situation to be in but one that is waaay too common these days with constant company mergers, downsizing and buy-outs. It happened to me years ago. Found myself unemployed through no fault of mine. It really sucked. Wiped out my savings trying to stay alive.

    I hope you don't lose your job but keep your eye out for other positions just in case. If you see something that looks better, go for it! Don't wait for the ship to sink. There is no such thing as company loyalty to employees these days so look out for yourself first.

    Good luck! I hope you don't lose your job.
