That's right folks, I, along with 250 of my coworkers, got laid off on Friday. To make a long story short, I worked for a Granite fabricator/installer/seller. Kind of a 1 stop shopping place for new countertops. As it turns out, they don't pay their bills. They opened 3 new stores, out of state, in the last 2 months, and apparently never paid for anything. I was working 70 + hours a week all summer, 60 hours in a regular 5 day week, and banked a pile of money, thankfully. There are probably literally at least a hundred customers, already paid in full, who aren't getting there tops installed. We were told last Monday we wouldn't be paid on time last week (2 days late), and they laid off 44 people at that time. We were told Tuesday another 20 layoffs were taking place on Friday. Wednesday they let go those 20. Thursday word came down the showrooms were not to sell any more stone, and Friday they told us to turn in our keys and go home. What pissed me off the most is that I worked the last 2 weeks, probably for free, because I highly doubt they are paying us, considering they couldn't pay us on time when they were still technically in business. So we were told they were meeting with a bankruptcy attorney Friday, and apparently the decision was to lock it up and fuck everybody. Oh well, not much I can do about it I guess. I don't know where the employees would fall under the bankruptcy as far as monies owed, but I know there aren't a lot of assets to sell off, because as I said, they didn't pay their bills. If anyone knows how that works, I would appreciate the info. Other than that, I can either laugh or cry, and I got jokes. So fuck it. Gonna get some shit done around the house, spend more time with the family than I have in a while, and figure out what to do next. There's money in the bank, the wife has a job that pays & covers the health insurance, so all is ok.
