Video, Impersonal Layoffs, cont.


Joel Nitzberg, 57, a community educator from Somerville, Mass., went to work one morning and learned from his assistant that she had been laid off.  She warned him that she thought he had lost his job, too.  Joel called human resources and was told over the phone that not only he, but the entire lifelong learning department, which he headed, was being let go.

Joel is not our first interviewee to find out over the phone that he had lost his job, but he is the first to have to place the call to human resources to be told the bad news.
