      I was lucky to survive out of 18 in our department only 5 remain , at the time it was a big worry as I thought at my age it would have been difficult to get another job.

      All of the people who were made redundant quickly found other jobs.

        That’s really interesting, it tends to be the very young and the more mature who suffer. So glad you kept your job against such high odds! Also good that everyone has found new jobs. Things have changed so much in the job market since covid started.

      I am a pet sitter and my services were not required because no-one went away on holiday and still not the same. It’s hard to say how much money I lost plus because I worked via an agency I wasn’t entitled to any of the furlough money.

        That sounds tough, especially not being entitled to furlough either. Thanks for your feedback. Hope you have found another source of income.
