Turns out the company can’t afford to pay me right now. And they couldn’t afford to pay several other folks.
The economic doldrums struck a couple months worth of revenue and caused a cash flow crunch. Things are on their way to being back on track, but that doesn’t pay the bills … or the paychecks.
I guess I’m somewhat lucky … they’re committed to keeping me, so they didn’t completely fire me like they did the other folks. They just can’t pay me.
Joy. They’re trying to figure out a way to subcontract me (I have specialized skills) to some other local companies for a couple months until the cash flow issues are resolved.
They’re also putting out the word to folks they know that I’m available and while they really want me back, if that doesn’t happen, that’s life…In 24 hours there have been a dozen calls from folks wanting to bring me in. So prospects are good…
But needless to say, I’m pretty busy this week and posting will be light.
