I hope you push your children to do well in school. I don't know if your current situation is a result of your laziness or just bad luck, but it sounds like you don't have a good education.
By anonymous at 08,Jun,11 21:47

Education has nothing to do with it. I have a bachelor's degree and was unemployed for 3 yrs before finally finding work. I know many educated people in the same position. This happens to be the worst time in history for new graduates; they can't find jobs and have to stay at home with their parents after getting these degrees and student loans. Its not about laziness either, although I can't say for sure that's not the OP's issue. The economy is terrible; the worst its been in decades. Anyone who doesn't understand that is a moron.

People in the USA spent longer days and more years of their life in school than any other Western country. The problem obviously isn't education, when there are people with college degrees who can't get jobs at a retail store. People are over educated and overqualified, for no good reason, because they've been sold this idea that a college education is going to be the key to success. People need specialized training, a trade, a skill. Jobs have been outsourced to countries where they can pay people slave wages, this lowers the living and working standards worldwide. In anycase if you wanna look at some of the things going on overseas.. is shocking. Conversely people in Europe where unions are strong, have 4 weeks of summer vacation, and a week off for Christmas and Easter, even the lowest paid workers get this. They asked me how many weeks vacation Americans get. I told them sometimes none but maybe a week or two if they've been at a place long enough and they work full time. They said, thats really sad. Only two weeks?
Its not a matter of education its a matter of human rights and greedy corporations, with no ethics, in terms of the environment or the human race.

I have a professional job, good health insurance, and live in a nice home with plenty of food, clothes, and money for entertainment.
What I don't have is a husband, much less one who loves me, and I don't have any kids, either.
I would trade with you.

I lost my home and the ability to live with my son. Jobs disappeared too. I had to move far away for a good job.

It is all bullshit. Home ownership, hard work, the "American dream", military service is all a lie.It doesn't matter how hard you work, how much education you get, or how smart you are. The banks own and control it all.

I am an HR Rep. If your husband hurt his shoulder at work why isn't he receiving workers'Comp? It pays 66% of his regular salary. Not alot but something til something else comes up. Good Luck. Hang in there. It will work out. Also, your local DSS office can assist you with other programs like energy assistance to help with your power bill and temporary cash to assist with children's needs. Call your local Department of Social Services. Also, if you need a phone log on to and get yourself a free government cell phone. It's very easy. Just answer a few questions. you said you receive food stamps so that qualifies you for the phone. Good Luck.
