You probably know someone who has lost their job as a result of downsizing.
The script is always the same.
They didn’t realize it was coming, or at a minimum, they thought they were safe from the cut.
They went to work on a Friday morning and came home on a Friday afternoon with a cardboard box full of their personal items and a folder containing their “package.”
In many ways, your situation is just like everyone else who is dealing with the threat or the reality of job loss. You expected to work another decade at least, right? More time at your job was going to give you the ability to recover from recent hits to your finances and your retirement fund.
The only plan you’ve ever had if you were fired or laid off was to get another job. That was your Plan A.
But to the extent the economy improves and job opportunities arise, it’s the younger workers who will work for less salary and fewer benefits who get the positions. You realize you can’t recover. And you don’t have a Plan B.
