A California woman is giving up her job – so another can keep hers. When layoffs were announced in a city council meeting, Patricia Overy willingly gave up her accounting position to a fellow 60-year-old coworker. A wife and the mother of four children, Overy decided to step down because she “felt she could cope with the loss of a job better than” her coworker, Sharon Singleton. Overy’s husband works for the city of Tracy and she is now looking for a new job – a task she feels will be much easier for her, than for Singleton.
Fredricka will interview Patricia Overy live on the show tomorrow.
But for today we want to know: Would you give up your job if it would help someone else?
Post your comments here. Fredricka will read some of them on the air in the10am ET hour of Newsroom.
