My job is secure unless the company totally fails - which I don't see happening. I did however have to lay of 8 people 3 weeks ago and another person today. Hopefully that is about it. Times are tough.

We are doing some major construction where I work and now today I was told they are laying off more and more. Last week several went, and now monday more.

Pretty soon we'll be down to basically 2 people to do the work of 30...But, hey, at least I have a job, it pays well, I have a company vehicle, company credit card and they pay half of my insurance premiums.

Luckily I've been through all this before. I've got 21 years seniority in a 10,000 employee aerospace company. Unfortunately the rumor mill is starting to crank out some vile crap. Other aircraft plants in my area have already made layoff announcements. Not Good, we have alot of young kids who may get the axe, I hope not.

Bottom line is that no one should be 100% confident ever....and especially not now.

Dem little rascals need an edumication and I am there to edumicate dem.;)
Seriously though, we had our talk today and there will be no "layoffs" at my high school, which is good since there are only twelve of us teachers there.

Took a buyout from Chrysler Corp. six months ago; back in school now while the wife works. Auto industry is collapsing, so I think I did the right thing!!!!

i voted 100%(just how i feel about my situation) I work at an automotive dealership, i am lucky the Co. i work for is not having as hard a time as some of other makes out there. but things are not great, we have not laid people off yet. i have been there awhile in a few different positions,so i don't think i would be one of the first ones to go.

Nothing is 100%, but I am secure for now.

I'm not too worried about my job, but things are slow here. But, as my boss told me one time, "Everybody is replaceable".

I voted 100% keeping my job... though it's not quite 100% I'm a college student and I work in sales part time (Start full time on Saturday after I'm done with finals). I'll do that until I find something better. There's a chance I won't keep my job, but that's only if my performance drops a bit- losing my job because of the economy is not likely.

I put 100%. Although I would disagree with the 100% since nobody's job is concrete, I would definitely say high 90%. I work for a ford dealership that has been around since before 1930. They are very well established and the property is totally payed for. Not only that but our service department has the highest profit/capita in the south-east region. Sure the economy is really down and business is not as good as it has been, but we still have work in the shop and it pays the bills. So really a) I am at a good dealership and its in the least trouble of the detriot 3 b) My skill set makes me extremely desirable for my position and have several certifications through ford that would make it easy to find a job elsewhere.
