I should feel guilty that Sean no longer has a job. But I don't. I now have his shift. Meaning I go in earlier and get out earlier. I still have my 40 hours. I am now the senior rep for my section. My responibilites won't be as much as Sean's because of program changes and intergration with the rest of the company. My boss pretty much assured me, my job is secure.
I understand the reasons behind the layoff, and why the particular people were chosen. But the intial response of fear and guilt is gone.
I want thank everyone who had kind words of support for me this afternoon.
