  •  My husband was in radio and laid off with no (11+ / 0-)

    notice several times over a 20 year plus span.  They were often give no notice and it was almost always due to a format change.  The ax falls quickly and with little to no warning. That is why he does not mind retail all that much because he actually has more job security, better pay, much better benefits than he ever had in radio. Granted, the work is physically exhausting, tough on his arthritis , and he is exhausted..but the management likes him and he is great with customers and wins customer service awards. Plus they let him make all the annoucements over those loudspeakers you hear in stores because of his radio background.

    He misses radio work but he does not miss all those layoffs, no job security, and very lousy pay and horrible benefits.
