Our company will start to lay off some people for economical reasons, I would be extremly happy to be part of the people that are going to be layed off.
Now you must start thinking this guy is nuts, he has a good salary and needs to keep his day job while creating his software product.
Well, there are some good side for living in France, the social protection is very good compared to most countries, let me explained you why I`m not worry about loosing my job.
In France if you`re layed down for economical reason, you get this
1 - During 8 months you get 100% of your total monthly salary
2 - After 9 months you get 56% of your monthly salary, and then it goes in decreasing after 12 month, 18 months and so forth ...
3 - You can get financial help from the French governement when trying to build your start up (I can`t tell you how much, I`ve not investigate this further yet)
A lay off would allow me to create my product while still having a regular income, and if after 2 years the sales of my product are not good , I can always go back to a regular type of job, and try creating something else ... Life is good, life is simple
What`s is it like in the US if you get lay off for economical reasons ? is it different from a state to another ? can you get financial help from the governement ?
