Last month I got laid off again. This is the second time in two years this has happened to me. Before I got this last job, I was out of work for nine months. Last September I took a part-time job hoping that it will land into a full-time job, but the place declared cutbacks. This last job was across stateline. I am once again unemployed. I'm getting tired of the high unemployment percentages in the metro and surrounding urban/rural areas. I'm thinking seriously about moving to Texas, transitioning through Salvation Army in that area. The city that I am targeting has only a 4% unemployment with 4.4% new job creation, Odessa, TX. I owe a lot of money and I really need to get serious about finding sustainable work.
1) What to tell family that I need to get serious when they (she- my mom) doesn't want me to move? What do I tell her when she keeps saying that the problem is that I'm not searching hard enough, not praying hard enough, being too picky, etc, etc? (I have already applied at fast food- not hired, but am not made up to become a corrections officer- too timid)?
2) What things should I be doing to get prepared to move into a shelter (i.e. a credit freeze to prevent identity theft, etc)? I have never lived in shelter (slept secretly at former place of work at times)?
Thanks in advance
