It looks like Irene and I will be going home next week. DH's meeting after work was full of bad news. 1) The company will be re-opening under another name on Monday and will no longer be part of a franchise. They offered DH the new part-time position that will open up, meaning he would suffer a pay cut of 500,000 won. 2) They are still protected by bankruptcy law since this position pays more hourly even though he would be making less per month. Thus, they don't have to give him severance pay.
I am so freaking pissed right now. Why did they even hire him if they knew they were suffering financial difficulties?
