Even those who are left behind following a layoff have "stuff" to deal with. "The psychological fallout of surviving a layoff lasts six years, according to the study published by the Institute of Behavioral Science," as published by Los Angeles Times. "Layoffs clearly have emotional and practical consequences for companies and workers."
Looks like no one wins today except maybe the CEOs who got big bonuses when they used taxpayer dollars from their federal bailouts. I wonder when the last time was that these guys ate macaroni and cheese for dinner.
Now don't get me wrong. I'm a business owner - I'm all for making a profit. But if I had to borrow money from strangers to keep my "boat" afloat, I wouldn't go out and buy a new car with the money.
Why don't these guys get it? The taxpayer money they got is not an entitlement.
