I got layed off and my last day is May 14th. it looks like I will be going back to the automotive shop I was at before here. I am taking a big pay cut, but at least it is a job. Anyways, this change of events has inspired me to apply for the Houston Police Department.....again. My original plan was if I got out of the Army I was going to be a Police officer. I got out and applied for HPD in 2001. During my application process i got deployed with the National Guard. When i got back i found out that HPD had been sued and all my application was void. his was a years worth of work and waiting gone. I got side tracked and well, here I am. So, I am going to give it another try!

Being in the auto industry myself and taking a 25% pay cut the 1st of 2009, I feel your pain.
I wish you the best on the HPD application. I hope you make it.

Sorry to hear about your lay off. I work in the oil industry and we've been having layoffs since Janurary. A really good friend of mine, got laid off this pass Wednesday.
Best of luck.

If it makes you feel any better, since being forced out of the real estate industry by about the end of '07 as a result of that industry tanking, I've had about a 91% pay cut with the last 2 jobs I've had to take. It sucks to say the least. I'm aiming for going LE as well, though probably in about 2-3 years.
