What state and city are you in, that the economy is so bad there?
I live in Reality, USA where “the economy is so bad” from the mountains to the prairies to the oceans white with foam.
Reno, NV. No work in three years. Every job posted in my field gets 100+ applicants, and there is maybe 1 posting every 6-8 weeks.
Out of field, like retail or food service minimum wage is about 4x worse.
If there aren’t tax beaks or something for businesses soon, we’re really screwed. This is from tax cuts expiring and the costs associated with Obamacare.
Since the Spring of 2010 my son-in-law has been among the unemployed.
