So Trevor has been a salaried employee for the last eighteen years. Some companies think that the best way of saving money in difficult times is to reduce the number of employees by over four-fifths, to cover the same area. When that (obviously) does not work, they lose critical contracts. So they trim again.
Trevor asked for, and got, voluntary redundancy and is ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTED about this. If he was twenty years younger with dependents he would have felt very differently, but it suits us.
Having speculated for two years as to what we would do when and if this opportunity arose, we were somewhat taken by suprise and need to gather our thoughts. what next? Watch This Space..
