Yea it sucks....we might lose our house because my mom can't find a job.
I'm sorry to hear that, and know how you feel. My husband was laid off almost a year ago and hasn't been able to find another job. He has skills, he is a millwright. He goes in and fixes those big machines, and those are the jobs that are going away.
It seems like the US situation sucks at the moment - you will have to forgive my ignorance on the subject but the UK is also having bank/credit/economic problems right now so i only know about that. I know my building society - where most of my savings are - just went bust and got nationalised...thats our governments answer nationalise them and have the taxpayers pay for them...
Yes our economy is in the pot.... We have Bush to thank for that. And it seems that our government has a similar plan. They are bailing out the companies that are here and failing, (most due to their own crooked dealings.) at the tax payers expense. Now they say this isn't a bail out, they are buying up the debt and will resell it when the stock prices go up. But is the American citizen going to see any of those profits? No we won't. Will the "normal" American citizen get bailed out when they are going to lose their home? No they won't, they will lose their home and have to grin and bear it.
