Lay-offs are horrible. And that’s when the economy is doing okay and entire industries aren’t shutting down.
Andrew here. Aaron and I are sharing this knowing we in the midst of a very stressful and scary time. And because people are home businesses are not making as much money and people are unfortunately losing their jobs. I was laid off almost six years ago, and hearing about all the lay-offs happening right now is making me think back on that experience.
Dear people who have just been laid off...
Dear Agencies, Clients, Studios, Practices, Shops, and Production Companies...
- Make a booklet.
- Give them their work computer.
- Extend their proprietary software license for a year.
- If they are a writer order them a huge stack of books (and order through the Powell’s employee union site, so 7% of the money will go to laid off workers).
