I was "downsized" on January 11th, and have been dutifully searching for a new job. They are very rare here in Massachusetts (the subject of another thread).

Yesterday I had to attend some sort of session at the Department of Employment and Training (i.e. the unemployment office). There were about 10 of us in the room, and nobody knew why we were "selected." We found out at the start of the session. Apparently when we first filed a claim and they took all our information, either our job title or our industry was flagged as being on a downward trend.

WHAT? HUH? Okay, I've read enough to know that's not entirely true. I have to believe it's because my last job was as a tech writer for an engineering company, and there were actually 5 people from engineering companies. But gee, way to motivate people to go find a job.
