What A Layoff Feels Like: ‘Somebody Has Ripped Your Heart Out and Stomped On It’

From FishbowlDC:

Yesterday on CNN’s Reliable Sources, Howard Kurtz spoke with Andrea McCarren, M.E. Sprengelmeyer and Ernie Bjorkman about losing their jobs.

McCarren was recently let go from WJLA. “You never expect it to happen to you. And that is one of my major regrets, is I didn’t have a Plan B, because like a lot of these guys, I worked hard, was fiercely loyal to my company, was available for work and volunteered for extra shifts 24/7. You don’t think it’s going to happen to you. And as one of the viewers had written to me, you don’t understand what it feels like until you’ve gotten the word. And he described it, I think appropriately, as it feels like somebody has ripped your heart out and stomped on it.”
