  • I read somewhere that job seekers outnumber open jobs 3 to 1 right now. That's tough. I was invited for preliminary testing for a police dispatch position in a small village community, one full time and one part time position. There were 50 people there. The village population: 400.

    It's rough. Very rough.

  • I recently lefy my job to be at home more with my kids and I am finding that we are saving more money by me NOT working and watching our $$ more... The only thing the economy has directly hit, has been our home value, retirement IRA, and kids 529. But we have faith that we will recover.
