My condolences to you on receiving that pink slip, regardless if it was due to the election or not. Behind every lay off is only a fellow human, with
family and bills to pay.
The reason companies lay off is due to unsustanibility as business entity. If they cannot afford to hire workers or treat its workers right under
employment laws, then the employer have NO right to operate a company, and should become a worker instead.
He mainly exist in the presumption that his biz model will earn him a profit through innovation or creative efforts to win in the competitive free
market, but often, the only creativity offered is cutting corners at every level in order to survive, just like what China is doing, and hurting those
companies who treated their workers right and could have offered genuine products or services at fair rates.
If your employer is such, then you are better off not working for him, as it will only be a matter of time before the company collapses, and would
have wasted all your years of time and effort in helping to build up the company.
Try to connect with others in your chosen field, and hear about their companies they are working at, then if they are good, ask them to keep a lookout
for you when positions become avaliable for you to get an interview.
Or, based upon your experience in the job and life, you may want to consider becoming an entreprenuer offering niche services or products that has few
competitors in the market.
Start off small first, with you being the employer and employee and test the market over your product or service offered for a period. Correct and
fine tune any mistakes, then if viable, with your report and plan, try to get funds first from family, then relatives, then friends, then any state
sponsored loan funds to begin your journey as a small biz employer, and if the potential is there, to become multinational company one day. No one is
stopping you in this direction. This is USA.
A journey of thousand miles begins with the first step. Being laid off now is a reality you have to face. The past is over. Ahead lays your new
journey of survival, and it begins with your first step.
