How laid off workers can get employed again

“A few months ago, I read a story in The New York Times about an autoworker who had been laid off from the blue-collar job he’d had for 25 years. It was the only job he’d ever had, and he was at a loss about what to do. That made me wonder what options exist for someone who’s been downsized and has no training or education other than what they’ve learned on the job. There are a number of things that will affect these workers’ prospects, according to Denise Rousseau, professor of organizational behavior and public policy at Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College.”
