Well, first time I've ever had to lay someone off and it sucked. Basically this girl dropped out of school so she could pay her bills and get caught up financially (single mom) but the word came from the top we had to drop some people so i had to lay her off. She was shocked and almost started crying ... i understood the business decision but man did it still suck. 7 other people were layed off from my company today to. Even the Aerospace/Defense sector is getting boned.
