Question Whos out of work?

I know this is a sore subject - but I am just wondering-

who is laid off?
Who is tired of fighting unemployment?
What the job market looks like where you are?

I'll start- I am a Laid-off RV worker from Inidana (northern)

My experience with enemployment is 1 week ok, next week they make another hoop for me to jump thru, and to wait at least 3 days for my card to get charged.

In Northern Indiana I see Nobody looking to hire?

I still have a job but they (being my employer) have cut 2 jobs from my office in the last 2 months. And Im still expected to get everything done very short handed. On one hand Im happy to have a job on the other Im sick of feeling the brunt of the cut backs when the fat cats on top still make the big cheese. We could fire a few VPs and save some big time cash.

I've got a son who works his 40 hour week plus any overtime he may happen to get. His pay is under $11.00 an hour with o/t, he gets an extra quarter an hour. He works harder than I every had to for half the pay. I use to get upset when I heard about people using food stamps or getting medical help. Not any more as without these, the boy, wife and girls would not make it. I figure between my parents working plus the wife and I all those years paying into it - it's helping him as well as those who really need it. Hell no I don't like those who take advantage of it.
It's not all Obama's fault either, he took on all the crap that had built up the previous years by both parties. Why would anyone want his job ?
I pray for our country and those in Washington to work together. It's not all one party's fault or the other's ...... it's how our government is and has been for a long time. Look out for me only without thinking of anyone else - this isn't what we voted for, I'm not talking just this past election either.
What's the answer - I don't know. Maybe I'll get elected, get myself a girlfriend, pocket some money then write about it later and live off the little people

I used to be a ground handler at U.P.S.
Unloading planes and what not. Mostly big cargo crates.
Loved that job, then they laid me off.
