Do the math. If they both work 40 hours a week that would be about $2,500 a month BEFORE taxes. After taxes that would be around $1,500. You ask about $1,000. Why do you feel your family can live on $1,000 a month? My mortgage payment is more than that. Our one car payment is over $500 a month. Insurance is a couple hundred, our light bill is about $250 a month on the summer. What about food? It seems very odd that both would get laid off in the same week, and very very odd that a company would lay people off the week of Christmas.

Ok let's say 2 person working 40 hours a week, and earning 7.85$ an hour. 40 hours *2 = 80 hours * 7.85$ an hour = 628$ a week (before taxes) If you multiple that amount 628 * 4 weeks = 2,512 a month (before taxes)
