Stay strong. Similar thing happened to me. They laid off everyone the same morning regardless of their circumstances. It felt like worst day of my life. Felt absolutely gutted. But turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to me. When a door closes, so many more open up. It sounds like BS but its true.

If they do it at the least opportune time, they are only concerned with themselves. Similar happened to me.

I wouldn’t feel too bad. No one likes to be the bearer of bad news but at the end of the day they’re employed and your not - they’re just following orders. In my experience, they’ll still sleep soundly at night.

Stay strong OP, I got PiP’d from an agency and went to the corporate world It’s easier and pays close/if not the same

That's so reassuring to hear, thank you.

Not sure what this means. What does announced you mean? They fired you?

Yes I was laid off.
