Crumbling Paths Not Taken

*gher-snorf* =) I'm so glad I didn't try too hard to get a job with Westech Information Systems when I heard they were hiring. They are the dev house subsidiary for BC Hydro - THE power company of British Columbia*. My reasoning at the time was that I was reluctant to be working with a gigantic union shop like BC Hydro. IMHO, unions are bad bad news.

Anyway, there was an article in the paper this morning about BC Hydro not doing so well, announcing layoffs and "the fate of Westech Information Systems" today. *sigh* It would have mightily sucked golf balls through a garden hose if I went to Westech, only to be unemployed again a few weeks later...

* — Well no, that's not quite true because there's also BC Gas (energy/utility/natural gas provider) which, as far as I know, is a completely different corporate entity... they've been talking about merging for the longest time, but it never happened.
