    Yep, current client co binned off 600 permies in early part of this year. Friday email and all that.

    Then they brought 600 contractors. Thems the breaks.

    I look forward to your all knowing and likely sarcastic and unhelpful reply.


      I've always seen permies go before contractors, tbh being a permy now I would love redundancy as the payout is pretty tasty, I know a few permies who have been made redundant a few times in last 5-10 years due to mergers etc and have made a mint off it.

      Contractors tend not to be binned as they are accounted for differently vs permies.
