My hubby lost his job back in Aug. 09 and we had NO choice to get on FS, WIC, Medicaid and unemployement . We both ( I was a SAHM) have been looking for jobs ANY jobs hubby since Aug. and then me for 4 months and we can't find ANYTHING not even freakin temp jobs !! It's sad I fill out applications to places that are not even hiring because I feel if I don't I am just abusing the system . I live in Indiana one of the highest if not the highest unemployement rates in the US . Relocating is NOT an option so its just the whole apply apply apply wait wait wait game . I have been racking my head on what to do if we can't find jobs before our unemployement runs out.Answer Question

Well i will tell you my hubby has been laid-off since 11/09 and the 11 weeks end and then another extension goes into action for another 11 weeks be prepared but really the jobs out there are far and few so i don't think you have much to worry about and. The system is in place for people like you. If you really want a job go to your local grocery store they are always hiring and it's job security (everyone needs food).
