Yes, the problem with execs getting pushed out is that they generally get at least a few hundred thousand dollars in severance, plus an ongoing benefits package. If you are a CEO, those packages go up to millions, unless you are caught embezzling or sleeping with interns. Especially recently, for line employees, it seems that IBM has been giving them a month or three of severance pay and a similar term of post-employment health coverage--at least in the U.S.
