Also in Japan, they always need people to help rebuild after a Kaiju attack.

So basically instead of layoffs, which aren't an option due to employment law, they rely on more short term contract workers and hire fewer permanent employees in the first place. I guess at least you know when your layoff date is coming in that case. That's easier for people to plan their lives around.

I don't think you were sarcastic, were you? This works in European countries as well and it works precisely because of what you said. And if a company wants to keep you, you get a permanent contract. Then, you're so protected by employment law you can really start living and stop worrying. It's kinda glorious. I hate it that my kids won't experience that level of comfort here in the US unless things change. I'm kinda ignorant on employment law here though.

“when the employer can prove that the organization would go bust.”

That one simple change would have certainly cut the layoffs in the gaming industry for the last 3 years in half at the absolute least. There would still be some because you have painfully stupid companies like Embracer who legitimately would have gone bankrupt because of their supreme idiocy in how they do business. But it would be a big improvement.

We should strive for this instead of boom and bust cycles that wreak havoc on people.
