You don't know that yet OP!!! Don't lose hope, and outwork the other workers. If you give up just because you heard of this "wave" you are going to be demotivated, and coworkers and your bosses will easily detect that demotivation, and then you really are fucked!

If he was hired recently enough that he hasn't even received a paycheck, the odds of him being laid off are slim. He was most likely hired with other new people to replace people that have been there the companies about to lay off / fire.

That would be true, if OP were in the US. At will doesn't exist her in the UK. They could pay them off, but only if they made the role redundant. Working time directives protect workers in the UK from at will firing.

Props to you OP for trying to find work. Many people would just give up. Keep trying, it'll work out soon enough. With that work ethic people will want to employ you!!

Well after a year you got a job, which the odds of which are pretty low. The odds of you not getting laid off may be lower, but hey, you've survived this far so there's no harm in believing you won't, and working until that decision is made. One thing at a time. Deal with it with the fighting spirit with which you dealt with your unemployment; keep fighting OP.
