I fell down set of stairs at home.....2 days after starting a new job. I called to let the manager know, and left message with answering service. Next day called and talked to the head person, I would be going to urgent care. I could not put weight on my left foot. Brought all paperwork to manager, her reply was
We can't hold your job. She was visually angry with me. WTF??? I did not throw myself down the stairs! I am 55 and do not understand why... see more
When you’re out there in today’s market trying to find employment you’re oblivious to others looking right along side of you. It can be intense, frustrating and depressing. Especially when you have a family to care for and bills to pay.
I find stepping back, re-evaluating your skill set and making changes to your key words helps. I recently found an old resume from 14 years ago that showcased skills I hadn’t used in some time and I do plan on... see more

I been living in Texas going on three years now and when I tell ya it's becoming frustrating to live in the United States. I thought America was the land of opportunity where people can spread their wings and flourish. The total unemployment rate is high. Just alone here in Texas is 3.5 percent not bad but not great either. Nowadays employers have temp services doing their dirty work. Corporate America plays by it's own rules on how they want to... see more

My area is economically a low man on the totem pole. Meaning we have about 10 to 15 percent unemployment most of the time. Regardless if the economy is doing well or not. What that means for me is I can't get a decent job that would allow me to save up to move to a better work area. Where there are jobs. What jobs there are here where I live are mostly low wage retail work. So that leaves me trapped in a area I loath to death and have no way out... see more
