On Dec 5th of last year my husband was laid off. We just had a working visa and had to leave in 60 days . Last X'mas was the worse holiday we've ever had. Fortunately, my husband found a new job and new company gave him stock and other benefits . Everything is fine right now. Just let you guys know that being laid off is not the end of the world.
