I experienced a layoff after almost 20 years with one company and have lost two more jobs in the past year - one to a business that was bought out and the other to a disagreement with management.
So, I’m an unwitting pro at going through layoffs and I can tell you now that death will be sweeter. After layoffs, I have the insecurity of not knowing how far my savings are going to take me and how long it will be before I can cash a payroll check again. Plus, those COBRA payments are huge dent in your living expenses.
In death, I have the best insurance and retirement package ever. Oh, sure. All my treasures on earth will become instantly worthless to me but I will be getting new imperishable treasures, a new imperishable body, new and better relationships plus a loss of anxiety and fear for my future.
My insurance company? Jesus Christ, of course.
So many people have been layed off and not gotten through it as well as you.
Prayers for all the unemployed and under-employed.
