I posted this in a similar thread and I do so here Because .. I want those that are fortunate enough to still have employment to understand that .. Not all of us are deadbeats!
Well its been over two years for me. (Out of work)
I have never drawn unemployment and the way things look .. I have no hope of landing .. even a burger flipping job .. Ever!
I have been given Every excuse known to man for why I havent been offered a job that I have applied for.
The worst excuse? .. You need to be bi-lingual .. yep .. spanish bi-lingual!
I suspect and in an offhanded way have been told that it is my age(58).
Employers are willing to hire anyone under the age of 26 because the Government is going to pay for their health insurance!
After 40+ years of working and fighting(army) for this country .. I am Barely hanging on to what little I have been able to acquire over the years!
Where I go from here .. I just dont know but .. I am scared to death.
You will be in my prayers. That is if you have no objection.
