One of Topiary's dear friends from the blogosphere has been laid off.

Topiary would like to speak up for Scones as a hard-working, smart, fun, sophisticated and well-dressed lady with writing (and blogging) talent, who would be sure to add distinction to any business.

Currently living with her cat Mirabelle, Scones is located in England and is seeking employment! Should any Topiary readers know of a position or opportunity they should contact Scones at her blog.

Sad Moo! to Scones and to all who are victims of the worldwide economic crisis.

I think that the CEO's of big multi national companies should take BIG pay cuts before they so freely ruin the lives of employees by terminating their employment.

AND, I wonder if, in fact, some companies just use the economic climate as an excuse to dump people. They could give other options like reduce the working hours across the board etc.

ohno! That stinks. A friend of mine got word today that the paycheck she is getting tomorrow is $800 less than normal. I would have passed out. As it was, she burst into tears and yelled at her boss. Not a happy day.

Bad all over. In the good times you can't have jam because it would upset the chances of the good times running forever. In the bad times you can't have jam because times are hard. And first chance they get they're shedding jobs and cutting paychecks and pocketing bonuses.

Every so often the anarcho-syndicalist in me starts poking me in the chest and making smug 'told you so' noises.

She seems like a very nice lady - I wonder what her job was?

So sorry to hear that Scones. Hope you're back on your feet, job-wise, soon.

Topiary feels these are scary times.

Even Topiary trimmers may be asked to make cuts.

My boss announced he'd accidentally been overpaying me. So cut $500 out of my paychecks for three months.....

I am feeling broke and on the cusp of disaster (even though that disaster might be when the kids have moved away and I'm in my dotage, b/c I won't have saved enough)
