Workers and unemployment

What happens to the worker that gets laid off? Could anything good come from that?

What assumptions do you have about unemployment? Have those assumptions been challenged by the readings or the videos? Why? Do you think that there can be positive outcomes for the unemployed after layoffs, downsizing, and outsourcing? Find evidence that supports your position. You may look at a specific region (like Detroit, for example), or a specific industry, but you should find some examples to back your argument. Be sure to cite your sources while you write a post in the discussion forum outlining your position.
