Poll Reveals Trauma of Joblessness in U.S.

If you haven’t lived it you can’t imagine….

Poll Reveals Trauma of Joblessness in U.S.

More than half of the nation’s unemployed workers have borrowed money from friends or relatives since losing their jobs. An equal number have cut back on doctor visits or medical treatments because they are out of work.

Having been through this, I can say that social isolation is one of the most difficult things… You can’t afford anything, so you can’t initiate anything with anyone, and it can feel humiliating to have others pay for you.

During the last recession I finally got a job (which I had to pay 1 month’s pay of the annual salary to get) that took me near Peoria IL. There were fathers trying to get work mowing lawns, but there just weren’t enough people who could afford to pay someone to mow a law. Two of the women I worked with came in with black eyes. And those were just the bruises we saw… It’s brutal out there.
