Hi all,

I graduated with a BSW a few years ago, worked at a local hospital for some time, and then went back to school for a MSW. I now work in palliative care and make a decent salary (~54,000), but I'm worried about job security.

I keep hearing from US colleagues that lay offs happen regularly, and we're starting to get them north of the border as well. Just wondering if the majority of you (eg. both from private and public sectors) are unionized, and if this makes any difference.

Thank you!
