I have a way to survive on my own. My intent is to live outside the business loop in Houston where mortgage is cheap compared to elsewhere. I plan on moving in a few months. I live in a different state where we are hardest hit the the recession. I have been laid off since November, and been bumbling around looking for sustainable work. So far, I have been reduced to 16 hrs and then just 4hrs when I gave my 24/7, in small jobs after being laid off. Execs say it's all economics, and that they cannot garantee any hours. I've been sleeping in my car looking for work.
How can I get through to people around me that the best for me is to find work elsewhere, instead of these miserable parts? They keep telling me, noooo that I'm soo much part of the family. But I'm not getting any financial compensation from them. And yes, they want to leave too, but it's a sin for me too.
How do I get through? I need to go!!!
