What do you think of this?

An acquaintence has been working for a company and was laid off. Then the company gave him the choice of stay on his job at the same rate as his unemployment benefits. He chose to stay on the job.

 

The point being they needed the employee but only at a severe discount.

I think that your acquaintance should be actively looking for a better place to work, or to attempt starting his own business.  If he is a good worker, that old company should suffer the lack of his services by having him find something better.....perhaps in the form of having him be their competition, as he probably knows whom their customer base is.

Benefits?  If so it was a good offer, easier to find another job if you've got one.  99 week whole in the employment record doesn't look good.  

 

I know top of the line engineers whose only offer was to train their h1b Indian replacement or leave immediately.

 

How do you propose to fix the problem?

Innovative. Maybe a new trend for those lazy, overpaid union factory workers to find out what they really are worth. Gold star to the personnel mgr who came up with that.
