I found out today that my job will still be there after the final culling process - but I will have to accept a £6,000 decrease in pay if I stay. Twenty eight other's in my department didn't even get that opportunity. The final tally for job losses is 334...far more than the initial, estimated 130.
I'm going to take some time to evaluate my options.
My job centre said there is no such job as a 'miniature scene setter', 'miniature duster/cleaner' or 'miniature collection security guard'. Damn, I would be perfect for any one of those. Bank robbery looked promising until I realised I would have to wear a balaclava - those things are a nightmare for static hair and apparently you can't just own a zoo because you really, reeeeaaaally love animals.
Hm, I may have to expand my search to include actual work 😒
I'm still happy and grateful.
I know there are too many people these days in far worse situations.
I'll be back soon, when normal mini making services will resume
