The job I lost
I have tried to work and live off temp project jobs for the past 5 and a half years. The long term work employment I had for 16 years prior to that was in the marine energy industry .
Due to job status, I was never able to get in line for benefits, nor am I now. The system of benefits does not apply fairly to all.
The stories of wimpering for extended benefits falls on deaf ears for an unfortunate and unhappy segment. But thanks to the overall ineptitude, we're growing!
What it's like being unemployed
There is massive discrimination toward the older experienced worker during this wretched span of deleveraging. There isn't any kind of recovery -as the papers say. They use hideous language to describe it: a weak recovery, a nascent, or struggling - even 'jobless growth" recovery
All, All just a mirage!
Despite homelessness , health, family, credit issues etc. I refuse to give in to the propaganda of a recovery.
I wish the best to all, but please , please stop kidding yourselves!
Have faith in each other and in God. Quit looking for the yellow brick road to follow.
- I could use a little, but all I can give is, live with the faith that God will see us through- and be confident - fear will destroy.
- All easier said than done, but March On!
