    Here’s what  a worker named Steve Arney in a Robert Naiman article published on Monday, April 27, 2009 by CommonDreams.org  says about that:
    "I had to take the severance, because I didn't make enough to save up a bunch of money. So I accepted the severance, so I lost my right to sue. Had I sued, the outcome, at best, two and half years later, the way the system is rigged for the companies right now, I would have got my job back. Two and a half years later. After appeals, and fights, and all kinds of headaches. I would have been a fool not to take the severance. So they can say, 'Well, our hands are clean.' They aren't. They're dirty."
