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.
