Knowing someone who went through the great depression and hearing how she survived through it was very inspirational to me! Her family went as far as to sew undies and socks with holes, not buy new ones. They had no cable, no internet, and just staples for food. Nothing extra. I see on the news the media comparing our economy recession with the depression and just don't see it I guess. We still have the pressure to buy buy buy at Christmas, and other holidays. Ipods, wii, playstation 3 etc. We spend on so many different things we really don't need even though the bad economy is such a huge deal in the media. I don't get it.Answer Question

Sorry ppl-NO degree is recession proof. I know several ppl who have just earned their nursing degrees and licenses who have been unable to secure employment. PPl are not hiring, PERIOD!
My daughter will graduate in May with her MA in Environment Science Policy and Spanish. She has also managed to secure a teaching credential to teach English, Science and Spanish. She figures she'll need to move off shore for awhile to gain some EXPERIENCE.
PPl who are getting jobs have experience, know someone and are willing to work for dirt cheap pay! Many others are finding short hour, non-benefited positions only. NO ONE is safe in this kind of economy-to think otherwise is delusional.
