I have been applying to about 25 to thirty jobs a week for 5 months. I normally make 27.00 an hour as maintenance mech.You must be overly secure in your job situation. the company I used to work for has lay-offs on average of about every 20 months I got laid off 5 times in 8 years. sure I could find a job no PROBLEMO! I just can't keep this home and pay for food for 8 dollars an hour. I have never been fired and I have good skills and work background, I dont use any drugs I dont drink, smoke or miss work being sick. after looking at my job search history 650 job apps in five months getting an acceptable paying is about (100 times) more difficult than your imagination. we drive 9 year old cars - paid off. and can just barley scratch by if I collect 522.00 a week on unemployment. Hey cheer up I just got a JOB!! 15.00 dollars a hour 3rd shift a 1 hour drive from home. does it get any better? WAKE UP GENIOUS jobs that put people off unemployment put them near the poverty level of life. these new benefits are going to crush hard working good people and the economy wont benefit from it also. our politicians and legislators have crapped the bed on this one -- watch and see.
