Thread regarding AT&T layoffs

Do you have to work in the absolute sense of the word?

Meaning that if you lost your job at AT&T, would you definitely lose your shelter or possibly have trouble covering your fixed monthly costs?

Not really, but I'm a squatter so not a good example.

More trolling by att social media team to shame you into not being rich like directors and above with their $50kplus stock annually.

Well, if I was L5 manager and got 2 years worth of severance the answer would be no. Being sole provider on L1 salary the answer would be YES.

How would anyone that is not yet of retirement age AND with a sufficient nest egg built up possibly be able to get by without an income? Silly post,

Definitely have to sell the home. I have 10 years to go to pay for it, so i have built equity but no way can i make rest of payments. Plus I don't meet rule of 75, I am over 42 with 20 years experience, so also lose health care benefits. I expect to be cut in September or fourth quarter when Leg organization does its cuts. It is what it is. It has been a great ride, even if last 10 years has been a s***show. Desperately looking for openings on Indeed.

The average American is 3-4 missed paychecks from being homeless so the answer is yes for most. I’m sole provider for my family of 5 with a nice home. I make about $90k gross here. I could squeak by with $55k if needed but that would put off my retirement for another 15+ years and no college fund for my kids. This is definitely one of the worst questions asked on this site.

Yes, the cuts are into the bone. I hope you don’t actually think 40% of the sales org was ready to partially retire

I could eek out a meager existence meeting MR75. It would include a whole lot of austerity.

unless you’re MR 75 at a minimum...YES. Gotta be one of the dumbest post yet on this board and they’re many!
