What world is whoever wrote this living in???
I was naively misled into accepting an 8 year state durational/temporary secretarial job at a major state university and was just laid off in August due to budget constraints. Of course everyone received their pay increases 2 weeks later. What a joke. See where hard-work, loyalty, honesty, compassion and going the extra mile gets you now-a-days?...Nowhere. Just think about yourselves and do what's best for yourselves, because employers no longer care. They only see profits and numbers.
THERE IS NO ONE TO LAYOFF!!!
Fear if layoff? That's a measurable statistic? So this is what the liberal media is going to roll out as proof the economy is "looking up"? Laughable. By the way, when there are millions out of work, the fear of layoff isn't a fear any longer, its a reality. Measure that.
Fear of lay off the lowest, Maybe it's because you have to be employed to be laid off.
Yea too late, I got laid off two weeks ago, after being at the job for 13 years.
Yes, very good MORON!! The fear of the Titanic sinking is at an all time low too!!! IT ALLREADY SANK!!! WE LOST ALL THE JOBS TOO. . . STUPID FAWK!! The government is the only thing that is growing in America!!
This is stupid! There is no fear of being laid off because they laid off everyone they could a few years ago. The system removed the people who were making decent money because they had worked 30 years in their business so they found ways to let those people go and hire new people at half the pay. Now, the only jobs available are part time jobs at min wage with no bennies. Who has a fear of being let go from THAT? This article is a farce. There's no fear because there's NOTHING to lose anymore.
If you aren't working and have stopped looking for a job and the govt is now taking care of you, Then yeah. The bigger fear is getting hours cut. See how the lobs twist truth?
You can't get laid off if you are not working. OBTW the private sector is doing just fine.
