I'm sorry to end the week on a down note, but I'm struck by a job loss situation that hit close to home. My wife works in health care; her facility was affected by layoffs recently. She's all right, thankfully. But a number of people won't be -- and there are a number of families who have lost either their primary or secondary breadwinner. That hurts -- there's no other words for it.
For those of us who work in the chemical or pharmaceutical industry, I know it must seem like all other fields have more stability. Statistically, I don't doubt that it's true. But I have a feeling (maybe a tough week at work, and in economic news) that things are still hard all over.
Best wishes to all of us.
