With all the unemplyement happening people can't survive latley. I live in Indiana and our town has been hit HARD . Both hubby and I could use a part time job but we can't because NOBODY is hiring at all . The unemployement office is LOADED to the max daily and they have to turn people away some days since it's so packed day to day . Houses going up for sale by the hundreds a day it's just not a good time right now for our town and the families here. I honestly think Obama/government should give out some money just to last families a month or so to maybe get back on thier feet. I know it would help ALOT of families in our town .
It is NOT about people being lazy and wo't work it's about they can NOT work since thier is NO jobs to work at !!

  • Why is it the some people always want the government to hand out money? Get a job at McDonald's or BK. They are ALWAYS hiring, it's damn revolving door. And you do you think will suffer because of all this money going to us? OUR children!

  • People need to be willing to relocate. I know that sucks but we all have to do what is needed to get by. We moved when my husband was laid off. He has a great job that pays him double what he made before. We are far from family but we are able to feed our children and pay our bills once again.
