I also just got laid off! My last day is in 2 weeks. How do I tell someone who just texted me for some deliverables that I don’t want to do them because I’m laid off?
Layoffs are on the horizon. Anything I should do to prep for the worst case scenario aside from pulling projects I’ve worked on?
Anyone heard about layoffs??? 👀
I was laid off in April and have been freelancing. Have consistently been forced by large agencies to work on W2 for reduced rates. The ECDs I answer into treat me like I’m full time and expect nights and weekends, even client meetings. They’re under the impression freelancers are getting paid REALLY well and should be grateful. They have overtime stated in the contract but won’t pay it. This market has left creatives totally powerless.

If layoffs occur what is your next step?

Confirmed layoffs beginning at Golin today.
I missed a deadline, the partner was very kind about it, but expressed that client was frustrated. How big a deal is this? Am I about to get fired?
Well fuck. I got laid off. Just when you think you’re in the clear, 2020 brings the pain. Guess it’s true that the big title comes with a big target.

Does anyone actually prefer a 2 wheel roller to the 4 wheel spinner? I don't get it but I still see consultants with 2 wheelers. I find it so much easier to walk the 4 wheeler alongside me.
