Today, after three weeks of my boss telling me how much he appreciates my hard work and has submitted my name up for a promotion, he called me into his office to announce I'm being laid off. FML

Did anyone else think that maybe he did like him and wanted him promoted, but then the company had to fire some people and he happened to be one who was fired?

Often it's the talented people who get laid off because they're near the top of the salary range for their position, so firing them "saves money". Salary is easy to quantify, whereas the value-add of a better-trained or more experienced employee is sometimes not so easy to put in dollars-and-cents. It's an outgrowth of the current school of "management by Powerpoint slide".
