If I may ask, what kind of job in what kind of business did your husband work at?


Banking. He was an operations manager in an international bank until he got laid off. Did consulting work for a few years also in banking. Got laid off again. We relocated for a job in another state because we had to sell our house. Ran out of money. Moved back to NY without jobs. Husband landed a job at Bear Stearns. A few years later BS went under.
Was able to keep his job when the other bank took over.Now they are relocating to another state in the summer. Wonder if anyone will even be offered jobs there. He left because he knew the end was near and they were asking those who were left to do the impossible.
There you have it.
