They laid us off in May, a month before the stipulations were met, so that they could give us a month’s severance for our permanent layoff. First of all, it’s part of the benefits package, which is part of my compensation. I am happy to say that within a week or two of the layoff I was offered and accepted a position that pays more than $15,000 more a year (which is more than 1/3 more than what I made), with a start date 6 weeks later.
