Arriana Huffington / Re: Rick Perry Seeks Obamacare Funding For Texans

Texas may claim it was implementing a program for the disabled without the costs of Obamacare. Without evaluation of their program, we cannot be sure of the quality. What is well known is that Texas ranks very low among providers of health care and other social programs. We'll believe what they say when impartial information is available.

Perhaps a first step to "better" layoff processes would be to accept that possibly the cause of some of them is due to NUT JOBS like Tim Armstrong being in charge and that the company's failure should be on their heads instead of the little guy always taking the fall. At this point I have come to accept that downsizing is another word for "management screwed up".

With that, I really don't think the company truly cares about anything other than the bottom line these days. So having been laid off three times I can share with you some of the tactics I've seen:

1. Provide a lot of notice ahead of time so as many people as possible will quit on their own and less severance will have to be paid out
2. Don't provide any information on what this severance will be, even if the company already has a known policy. The mystery provides more stress for the employee which may make him quit sooner.

These Companies entered into an agreement with the US government for which they were compensated. Unless there was an opt out clause no Judge can adjudicate on this, its a legal binding contract.
