Economic Reality Hits Home

I was walking across campus on my way back from class yesterday and ran into a colleague of mine whom I hadn't seen for a while. She told me she was heading to her "farewell lunch" because she'd been laid off.

She's a lovely person and her work is absolutely stellar. I am bummed beyond words, really.

Reason why tenure is essential #345. It worries me that it seems to be less and less common.

Yeah, a few really great people have been laid off here, too. It's really saddening.

Absolute bummer.

. . . the union is supposed to know about all layoffs--different union?
