Regardless of whatever is happening at this very moment with the economy you cannot allow it to keep you without work. I'm going to tell you how you can get to back to work. You have to get some money coming in. This means you have to get work. Don't allow a few to decide you will not find work. Getting work has to be what you know will happen. Then and only then will you put in play whatever it takes to make getting work a reality. Let me tell you about days of old. We never ever felt "I'm never going to get hired". We always knew a job would be sooner rather than later. It had to be. There was not option. Not getting a job has never been an option in the social economic world of my days as an employee. I've never been jobless a moment longer than I chose to be jobless. It just wasn't an option to not get hired. These are the kinds of guts America was built on. These are the kinds of guts it takes now. If you want a thriving America you have to choose to either survive or to thrive. Find a way. Find a job that gives you a pride. Get some training if needed. Do what it takes, just go get the job you desire. Remember you will survive or you will thrive. What's your call, America?
