Moved for the job and found out on Monday that the company is laying off workers next month.

Since I haven't been there for a long time, there isn't severance and it doesn't appear unemployment. My last day will be the week before Thanksgiving and I'm contemplating whether to go home and be with loved ones for the holidays or stay and fight tor remain in this city. Wti the cost of living and rent places, it's now a city I can remain without a regular paycheck. I'm starting my job search but wondering if I should contact my landlord and give notice. Right now, I'm so sad that what I thought was my future is ending before I even finish paying for the move.

Can I even negotiate pay at this point?
I entered into an interview process after knowing their comp range which was below what I desired. When they asked if the salary range would work for me, I said it was below my desired range but am interested in learning more. I thought perhaps learning the total comp package would make it better but it didn't. For reference, this is a very large private university, not a small business. After learning more about the role, it's clear that the responsibilities are way higher than the title calls for (I'm very confident of this). This role title would be a "step down" for me but the responsibilities match, or perhaps exceed, my current role.
It's a new role they created and frankly, I'm not sure they know exactly what they want/need. I honestly don't know how many folks would do that job with those responsibilities for that price. It seems like an easy "PASS" and move on but I met the whole team and they are so wonderful.
Here I am at the job offer; can I even negotiate a higher salary considering they told me salary is $XYZ - $XYZ? If so... how? What the heck do I say? This people-pleasing gal is stumped.

I am on my way into maternity leave (29 weeks) and don't want to return to my job. I want to start a new job after my leave. How common is this? Does anyone else have any experience with this?

An employee's spouse has previously fought and kicked cancer's butt. Unfortunately, it has returned for the 3rd time. I'd love to hear some ways on how to offer support to this family through an employer, aside from a meal train. Thanks in advance!

a relocated for a job in July, everything was going well. I started to really love my job for the first time and was going over and beyond. Covering managers shifts day and night and more.. never gotten a written up or anything. They fired me without any reasons all they said was you’re not the right fit for us we will have to part ways. I told them they had me relocate for this job and now you want to tell me I’m not the right fit.
I had to break my lease to my apartment and move with my parents. But I am so traumatized. I don’t think I ever would like to work another 9-5

Salary request question…
I recently interviewed with a medium-sized medical center for a position as a Practice Manager in NC. The job entails managing three physician’s offices in three different physical locations. Since I don’t have any experience in the medical field but I do have managerial experience, how would I come up with a salary $ amount? This is the first time in my 20+ years of working that I’ve been asked to do this. Help pls!

This is how most of my generation (Millennials) and Gen Z feel.
What's going to happen as more boomers retire, and there is no one to take their place, because employers can't be bothered to train younger people anymore?
TRAIN NEW EMPLOYEES. You're never going to find the perfect employee. Stop requiring 5 years experience for entry level positions. Stop with the 3 to 4 round interviews.
