The real scoop on layoffs

Everyone wants to know if their company will be having a layoff or not. Often company layoffs are not announced even to their own employees. I found out that the company I work for had a layoff last month of 10 employees. I didn't even find out that until I asked where one of the women I knew was, since I had not seen her in 2 weeks. I thought she was on vacation but it turned out she was one of those laid off.

So how can you find out what is going on at your company? I found a website that might be of help, it is called Layoff Gossip and it is an interesting place to search around at. Hopefully your employer is not on the lists but if they are you can get an idea about what is going on.
