Those of you who have been fired in the past, what was the reason and was it a blessing I disguise?
So someone I know asked HR about a boot policy. When he found out that there wasn’t one, but his boss said there was (who gave the guys $ for boots and the claimed it on his expense reimbursements as something else) the boss got mad at him for askingHR (and in trouble for the expense reimbursements) and then 2 days later laid off my friend. There appears to be no notice of bad performance and this person always was the first person on the job site ready to work. Thoughts?

Layoffs - I heard a lot of layoffs at Huron and Studer of Directors and above. Time to jump ship ?
General question: If you get laid off from a job, and have ~6 month’s of expenses saved, would you simply focus on getting a new job, or getting a new job that pays more? Should you ever take a pay cut, especially in times like these?
I got laid off 6 months ago. Next week I finally start a new in-house job in the media industry. Looking back, I’m pretty sure I walked the plank off a sinking ship. But I’ll miss you crazy fishes 😘

If you feel like you might get fired during busy season, is it better to submit your 2 weeks notice or just wait until you get fired. You're burning bridges either way.
I hired this digital marketing guy and he's doing alright but he doesn't respond to my emails. I almost fired him yesterday after he tested with 50% of our ad budget. I paid a month in advance and I honestly don't see this moving forward past the first month. Anyone have experiences that might help me make this decision?
So Kpmg advisory layoffs?
I had to layoff a great person from my agency. The pain in her eyes was crushing and I think it’s the last straw for me here. Having to let people go for performance is one thing, but this...
At a happy hour, my boss was visibly drunk and "joked" that I would be fired soon. Now I'm paranoid that he was being serious and I need to start looking for new work. Am I just being anxious?
Why is US healthcare so expensive?
MIL turned up to visit newborn with a cold sore which in itself was very strange to me. - I was heading out so asked SO to ensure no handling or kissing of baby. Came home and she’s carrying him around and feeding him. What would you do- I’m horrified and feel angry but maybe I’m overreacting.

Ideas for quality protein sources that are easy to make at home and won’t break the bank? I’m getting sick of eggs and chicken breast and I’m lactose intolerant so avoid dairy.
