I was offered a buyout at work. Should I take it?

A voluntary buyout offered to employees is one way is to cut payroll and benefit compensation. This is a tried-and-true move, and there’s nothing nefarious about it beyond the fact that it’s often older workers who are targeted. In the last year, for example, workers at Delta (DAL) Gannett, Southwest Airlines (LUV) and UPS (UPS) were offered buyouts.
