Building on the support offered by LayOffMoveOn, some folks affected by the crappy employment market are taking it face-to-face. LaidOffCamp, an ad-hoc gathering that's spread from San Francisco to New York to Dallas, comes to Chicago on June 10 to bring together unemployed and non-traditionally employed people (including freelancers, entrepreneurs and startups). Participants can join together to share ideas, connect, and empower one another in this free event.
