I live in one of the hardest hit areas of the country by the deep recession. I have been deligently looking for work (going every day to the workforce and so on). Last week I went to my bank to make a withdrawal. I had to vent about the difficulty finding stable work. The tellers told me to go to the ACS (Army Career Service) because there was a call center hiring. Soon after I went on base to find out about the center. ACS wouldn't talk to me unless I was a dependent. The civilian work force doesn't turn away dependents, why should the ACS turn away civilians (total civilians)? Plus, I dread the veteran question on civilian applications. I'm starting to feel resentful. Believe me, I would join the military, but I'm a single mom. When will there be a balanced universe (jobwise)? And, when will tax payers get more respect?Answer Question

See, I don't understand questions like yours. If you are area is so bad, why don't you move? In Missouri, we are actually having issues trying to find people to fill our jobs. This is ridiculous. People have to realize, jobs don't come to them. You have to get out there and find them. If it requires moving, you must do it. Eventually people, there will be no government assistance, so it will be either sink or swim. I think you seriously need to consider swimming before it's too late. Sympathy does not pay the bills kids.

I live in Missouri. 9.3% unemployment rate. Someone is blowing smoke.
My sympathies, OP. Things are tough all over.
