Negotiating your way out of a layoff: Strategies for saving your job

Monday, March 09, 2009

As the joblessness rate goes up it’s becoming almost commonplace for American workers to consider a plan of action in case they get laid off. But is there a way to be proactive and stave off a layoff? Cali Yost, blogger for Fast Company magazine joins The Takeaway to talk about ways to save your job such as talking to your employer about saving the company money. Yost writes and consults on work and life issues.

"Managers think that if they lay someone off who makes $50,000 they're going to save $50,000, and actually that's not true. It's going to cost them more to let someone go."
