Not exactly.

"Right to work" means you can accept a job without having to be a union member.

"Hire at will" is what you're thinking of. Employer (or employee) can end employment without giving a reason.

When one door closes, another one always opens, even though, it can be hell in the hallway.

Sorry to hear about your job. It's happening to lots of people these days. A good friend of mine got the news yesterday also. No rumors, no warning just "we aren't going to need as many people and you're the highest paid so...".

I've been watching current events for a while and (IMO) at best it's going to the Carter years all over again. (inflation, malaise) I was talking to a bud last night and we were remembering a party (in about '80) where he and I were the only ones who had a steady job. If the senate passes "Cap and Trade" it probably will be worse. (I'm betting they'll pass it. And stocking up on ammo, whiskey and silver just in case.) If you can get into clean energy, the ground floor still has a few spaces left. I just wish that the bozos in DC would wake up to hydro-electric and nuke power. (This comming from a guy in the natural gas industry.)

Sorry for the silght rant but there's tea parties tomorrow.
