there was another post about unemployment - my response relates to all the jobs that were allowed to leave this country. all the chinese, mexican, and indian people benefitting from corporate greed are not to blame, but the government shouldn't allow so much of our country's business to be elsewhere. i have excellent education, skills, and experience, and i live in an area that is supposed to be one of the best in the country for jobs. i can't get one (again, the companies where i'm applying don't know i'm pregnant yet). also, it costs MONEY to move - if i can barely afford to pay my bills, live in an area that is better off for jobs, what do you suggest i do? i assume many of you happy about this also complain about people on welfare. please tell me how i'm supposed to survive with a new baby if no one will hire me, i can't get unemployment, and you resent public aid. it's not for lack of trying.
