"For those of you who will pipe in, I can count about a dozen employees who left for greener pastures and more money or just prematurely jumped into their retirement. Market forces are in effect. Those that left, left with skills that aren't easily replaced."
I hate to burst your bubble, but NO ONE is irreplaceable. For the dozen workers that left, hundreds will be standing in line to grab it up. For the few with skills that aren't easily replaced, it may take a little longer, but they WILL eventually be replaced. After having worked in the workforce for almost 50 years, I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that their jobs will go on without them. It is what it is.
