At least in the US, the country where we always stick fast to the principles
of free enterprise whenever it's to our advantage, the employer/employee
relationship has always been one of convenience.  The myth of lifetime
employment that developed in the 50s was always just that.  It's hard to get
really upset about the downsizing experience, unless it happens to you <g>,
because it's the nature of the beast.  Your dog or cat would probably love
to eat your hamster, and you can only reasonably expect your employer to
care about you only as long as your are "useful."
