Help for Booksellers Looking for Work
A good man on a Barnes & Noble employee-only site, was asked to pass the following message from BINC to booksellers who lost their job on Bloody Monday:
If you were part of the recent layoffs you are eligible to apply for up to 12 months after your job loss. PLEASE NOTE: Your job loss cannot be the qualifying event. If you have experienced a secondary unexpected event such as a serious medical expense, threat of eviction or utility shut-off, death in the family, or more, you may be eligible to apply for financial assistance from the Binc Foundation.
If you think you may qualify, please contact Binc at firstname.lastname@example.org or 866.733.9064.
Go to BINC for more information. I’ve promoted them before during weather related catastrophes. They are amazing people who assist booksellers in need. Check them out.
