That's horrible to hear Troy.
The industry is slowing down so drastically that I truly do fear for many the fine folks here.
I appreciate the authority and insight you bring to so many of the dialogues here. I pray that you find a quick and favorable outcome to your dilemma, I've been in the nasty predicament of being laid off before, and I absolutely hated the prospect of having to rely on any form of government assistance while searching for jobs. I am sure you. like many of us, would much rather be actively busy with work.
Best wishes to you.
