When a person is 'let go' on a Friday it gives the person a weekend to get depressed. If the employer dumps you on a Tuesday, at least you can go apply at a few places, send out resumes, get some interviews set-up, and get the job-hunting momentum building.

It should be against the law to dump an employee on a Friday.

Plus, not everyone has a personal computer to do job searching on-line; some, instead, rely on computers at public libraries often by appointment, and weekends are VERY busy.

My friend was 'let go' yesterday, a Friday. His face looked stunned. Even his body looked shocked. In this society where the entire system is set-up so that paid employment is the only avenue to success and human dignity, being dumped by an employer with no warning and with no immediate prospects for work somewhere else -- it can be devastating.

Multiply my friend's situation by millions and millions of people in the USA and world (thanks to Wall Street and world banking corruption and scamming) and, well -- the thought is just overwhelming. Our system is cold-blooded, uncaring. Right down to the day of the week and, without concern or civility, turning people out on a Friday.

Is war on the menu for 2020 elections?
