So, at my project, we've been expecting the axe to fall for some time now. We were told the project would last through X date, and X date had already passed. 24 of 34 people on the project were let go. The amount of available work has been dwindling. It would follow that we will soon be looking for work again.
Somehow, that didn't happen. There's some administrative tomfoolery happening, but it's not going affect us immediately. The associate in charge of our project met with us today, and instead of firing everyone, told us all that we could keep working regardless of all the above reasons to end the project. It'll end, but not for a few months, and probably with a break around Christmas, but at the moment our orders are to keep plugging away. The weird thing seems to be that the attorneys in charge might change, but our project staff (the temp attorneys) won't.
It was a nice surprise, and something that had never happened to anyone on our project. The possibility exists that we won't get picked back up when the project resumes, but it seems like it would be an outside chance. This could work out very nicely.
I should really get some Christmas shopping done.
