“Voluntary” layoffs and furloughs. Wonderful.

Has anyone heard anything about furloughs being extended? I hope not, but was curious.
I spent a short time at BAE Systems Applied Intelligence last year. I have never seen a company with worse moral. On my first week on the job, three of my direct reports informed me of their resignations. In addition, there was a total lack of compassion and empathy for the plight of the employees. After mass lay-offs and forcing every employee to reapply for their jobs, I raised concerns to upper management and no one cared. I was told to just accept it! Outrageous the moves they are now making in the middle of this crisis!
I think the whole CoronaV “downturn” and furloughing they’ve done to deal w it is probably just an excuse to clean house a bit without all the associated bad pr of a regular lay-off. My gut’s telling me that one person I know who was furloughed could be extended or laid off entirely. I may be being pessimistic, but I’ve been through this b4 and the furlough being used as a soft ball, gradual lead-in to a full lay-off would not surprise me. It’s a tactic. Hope i’m wrong, but that’s my take on it.
Contractors are getting axed now left and right. A sad day for BAE
Complete joke! Typical of this company!
Everyone is getting hit. This is unprecedented.
I thought BAE was essential and making so much money they were turning down business ?
