A video featuring an ASL interview with Dennis Legler, an older white man seated at home.
Dennis Legler: So a buyout. If you accepted it, you signed and you were paid, they were offering to pay you. And it was a high price- it was a good pay out. A good offer. So, for me, I couldn’t find another job like that, with benefits included. I realized I would get more out of the offer than if I’d stayed on for another few years working. Really, the buyout they offered was very good. I started out investing it and those took off again. So, it really helped a lot. You couldn’t find a better - better pay than that. So, you were going to lose if you didn’t take it. You would lose out.
