    Since the others didn’t “survive”, what does that imply ?

    I used to fear job interviews. But somewhere around the middle of my career, I realized that I had actual skills that were actually valuable, and that a job interview cuts both directions. It was definitely a blinding light moment when it occurred to me, near the end of a particularly worthless interview that I really didn’t WANT to work there. After that guy, I just walked over to the HR desk and said I was leaving. And left.

    I remember when this sort of thing happened to me at my first full-time job. I was the last non-managerial designer in the company until they laid me off. Mind you, this was several months before the stock market crash that led to the Great Recession of 2008. I was two years out of undergrad with my bachelor’s degree, and it took me years to recover since I didn’t have enough years of experience and the fearful job market kept requiring qualifications that were out of my field. I studied a lot during those recovering years to meet these requirements, but each time I looked for work in my field, companies kept piling the requirements on until I had no choice but to take on another career. Now we’re seeing the same disaster hit the country again as lessons fail to be learned, warnings fail to be heeded, and action fails to be taken to get us back on track.

    So you’re still employed here. But we’re going to have to give you a pay cut in order to stay competitive.

    I made it through two rounds of post-merger/takeover layoffs. Survivor’s guilt and a sense of fatalistic angst permeated the workforce, while management devoted all effort to winning highest possible rung on the corporate ladder. “Are we having fun, yet?” became the mantra.

    The desire to accomplish more with fewer resources is a great spur to technological innovation.

    People keep fretting about how all the computers and robots are going to take all our jobs. I say “HOORAY! Let them take all our jobs! ‘Work’ is a 4-letter word! Let’s all live like we’re retired. It’ll be glorious!”

    Today is the half-year anniversary of the alarm going off:

    2020-07-07 • US death toll: 133,013

    For comparison • Korean War (33,686) + Vietnam War (58,220) + Afghan War (7,970): 99,876

    Now past • WW1: 116,516

    Future targets • WW2 (418,500) • Civil War (~620,000) • Spanish flu (~675,000)

    In reality, that guy with the whip is really a squadron of middle managers that miraculously deemed itself indispensable and so escaped the layoffs.

    Layoffs were a little different back then. getting cut or getting the axe might be more accurate :(
