Oh my gosh when I real your email I almost fainted!!! Someone is in my shoes!!! I am a 54 year old female, divorced and have one daughter who is 26 years old. I have been divorced for 16 years and my life has been an uphill battle the whole time. I have a college degree that has gotten me nowhere. They drill you to go to college and so I did and I'm still "unemployed." I recently got laid off from work because my job got outsourced to China...our government doesn't care. I have fallen through the cracks time and time again. I'm either over qualified or under qualified. I'm sick of hearing it. I'm sick of making the same pay that I was making 15 years ago and yet my cost of living has soared and is 4 times what it was just 10 years ago. Our government is catering to the corporate elite and our government is nothing but a fraud.
And now, when I go into a job agency to look for a job, there is a Latino woman sitting behind the desk telling me she doesn't have any work for me...but when I look in the room it is filled with Latinos. What is happening here? There are some jobs I can't even apply for because you "need to speak Spanish..." Is this what our government has brought us to? I see other people from other countries working...even buying homes here in America, and I was born and raised in the United States and I can't find a job.
