My DH lost his job

as of 28 December and I am slated to lose mine due to a contract loss next week (31 January); we’ve known about the contract ending for several months yet very few people have been able to secure another job — those that left already have just basically retired with no job to go to… it’s very tough out there and we are in the metro DC area!
The only thing in my favor is my manager pulled some favors and I am being hired by a competitor — but only because of personal contacts have I been “saved”.
I will send you positive thoughts that it goes well for you.
