Help people financially when they loose their jobs.

Indian economy is growing day by day in all sectors of industry but, also there are a lot of people being laid off (terminated) with different reasons, it entirely depends on the company whether its willing to keep the employee or forfeit. As long as an employee is working and earning he/she is respected and treated good. But, if a day is seen when the same person loses his/her job then there would be change in atmosphere. Our project deals with such people who when lost a job or got fired so suddenly would take time to find one.
Hope to call the org as Joblostsolution.com (JLS.com)
Scenario: We group some employees with all their personal, professional details registered online and take certain amount (rupees 100 or 2 dollars) per month for about a fixed period of months like say 6 months and then incase of the registered employee gets fired or terminated only after the 6 months paid period of time then he could reach out to us. The person would be paid 10 times the amount what he/she has paid.
Let us assume that Mr. X has paid our organization 100 rupees each month for about 6 months.
100*6 = 600 rupees
When he loses his job, then he is eligible to gain 10 times the amount what he has paid.
600*10 = 6000 rupees
The above said amount will be given to him/her in two or three month’s duration as per their requirement.
We would also tie up with all the major consulting firms and online job search sites in finding a better job to him as quickly as possible. This would not only give some time for Mr. X to move and start in a new way.

    Apr 14 2014: Nice to see an interested mind. Check out the links below.... search Ted discussions for lots of feedback... explore your own views on the concept and, most of all, keep an open mind since that is where change thrives.

    btw, there is no freedom from responsibility of one is sincere about owning their citizenship in a civil society. What was clearly expressed below was about freedom of choice. Sounds like a good starting place to me.
  • Apr 14 2014: In USA that is unemployment insurance managed by states. Here employer pays. If it works for you , it is fine. It will not be for uneducated physical laborers. How long have you been in this.How many subscribers you have so far?
    • Apr 14 2014: Hi Raj
      I am only a beginner in this trying to group as many as possible. Just thought of this procedure couple of weeks earlier but, I did not knew USA had such facilities for unemployment. However in India I don’t think govt. does not take part or initiate such projects. There are no subscribers for this not yet but hopefully one day if TED talks or someone would come up financing or do something interesting probably it might come alive.

    Apr 11 2014: I would also suggest promoting the idea that we need to start thinking beyond the simplistic notion that a person's value is based solely on their ability to exchange their labour and talents for money. In other words, by the jobs or careers they end up in. How about starting with the question of just how free are we?

    Science and technology are constantly finding ways to eliminate the human component from the workplace. There have never been enough "paying jobs" for everyone and there fewer and fewer every year. And that is a good thing.

    I am talking about freedom. Real freedom. The freedom to choose how to spend the limited time we have in this life. A life finally freed from the coercive forces of toiling to survive and, instead, a life spent engaging in those things that are valuable and relevant to ourselves. Things such as raising children, caring for sick, invalid and terminal family members and friends. Free to take the time to work through one's grieving process at one's own pace and within one's own time frame.
    Free to pick and choose what jobs we want and when we want them. Free to pursue educational or other learning opportunities when we wish.

    In other words, if we are going to preach the virtues of freedom, then it is time to actually expand upon the concept and finally free ourselves from the threat of destitution simply because we have different goals, interests or needs than the employers.

    This what the other links are all about.

      Who is required to pay you for all your freedoms? Who pays for your food, clothing, rent and I am sure you will be free to operate a car; at whose expense? How does society maintain itself, if you have no responsibility in that maintenance.
      The freedom that you seem to espouse is practiced on many streets. It is called panhandling?

        Apr 13 2014: Thanks Charles, an excellent example of why there is such a desperate need to be able to think outside the box that current ideologies have created.

        Please bear in mind that everyone of our institutions and structures are human made. They do not exist in any form other than that which we imbue them with.. Granted, there will always be those who are unable or unwilling to accept change but they cannot be allowed to derail the need nor the understanding that change is inevitable.

        Hence the links already provided.

          I am always willing to learn. I would be interested in hearing of a society as you describe. One that is free from any responsiblitity you choose not to accept. To my knowledge no such economic or political system now exists. Please explain how this is to work?
          I have asked this questions before, perhaps to someone else, but no reply. I look forward to an answer.

          You failed to enclosed any links or they did not show. I am not really interested in links. What I am interested in is your understanding of this political and economic structure. So, I wait for this information.
  • Apr 10 2014: Yes, we call that unemployment insurance in America.
  • Apr 9 2014: Your post exemplifies the problems with capitalism. It's an unsustainable system that brings more horror into our lives than any other.
    • Apr 9 2014: Hi Gail, It’s more similar to the practice being performed by the Insurance sector. How is that in any way does it affect? Can you please elaborate your statement.

    Apr 9 2014: Google Basic Income for some ideas... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basic_income offers some thoughts on the subject.

    Guaranteed Minimum Income is another perspective I find appealing http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guaranteed_minimum_income

    Bear in mind that "jobs" exist only where employers find it more profitable to hire people than to automate or robotize their operations. Of course, service - servant actually - will always be in fashion and there will always be those who will prey on the desperate and/or vulnerable. . .
  • Apr 9 2014: Cool Idea :)
