The Depression Hits Home

Tomorrow is my last day at work. I knew it was probably coming. I posted several months back that I was getting laid off and it sparked a great thread for things people could do if they were laid off. Maybe this one will too. I got a reprieve from that lay off notice and was able to work up till now. But this one is real no reprieves. sad to say. It's almost a relief. I just wish I didn't need those damn FRN's to pay my bills.

I have done a decent job of preparing but am still mad at myself for not doing better and procrastinating some things I should have done years ago because I knew better...

To those of you who are just getting started. Don't procrastinate! It is here now, it's not down the road. Do everything you can and don't wait. It just has not reached the tipping point but it will soon.

One of our largest Employers in the Boise and surrounding areas just announced they will lay off another 2000 people

I need to know what

you need to do that you wish you had done? I wish we could move but my husband still has a job we can't afford to have him quit. I wish I had more food but can't afford more. The only thing we have going for us is the house is paid for but the taxes are so high that I am sure we will lose it when he loses his job. I would like to have some sort of vehicle that we could live in if he lost his job but we don't have money for that either.

The people I babysit for

the husband job will end the first week of April. I have been trying to wake those people up for a year. The husband tells me he doesn't think it is going to get as bad as I say. I shake may head and take their money. LOL One day he will change his mind.

I remember your first thread

I remember your first thread about this a while back. Sad to hear that the last day has finally come. Good luck in finding your next job.

Sorry to hear

I'm losing a lot right now also. I'll take the extra time and spend it with my family and friends.

Welcome to the club. I have

Welcome to the club. I have been unemployed for 15 months now.

Sorry to hear that Hawk...

Sorry to hear that Hawk... take the unemployment benefits.. I know as an employeer I have paid unemployment insurance on all my workers for 20 years. I never had 1 guy in 20 years use it.. this last Christmas I had to lay off 3 people.. one being my brother. So do not feel bad going on unemployment. Your employer paid quite a bit of money for it.. so use it.

Is the new freeland project still happening?

I still need help getting my password recovered so I can get involved. Although, MO is looking better and better!

What's up

with MO? I haven't seen anything mentioned about that recently. Did you plan to relocate there (a couple months ago) fall through?

yes the project is still

yes the project is still going on. Mike when you go to log in there is a link that says: "I forgot my password"

You should be able to get your password that way. If not let me know.

at least

you are eligible for unemployment.

I have been self-employed for 16 years and my business is about dead now.

no unemployment for me, although
i am required to pay their "insurance"

frackin scam. i frackin hate the bastages.

Also, look at the bright side, now you have TIME to be an activist.

woo hoo!

I thought it was 'farging bastages'.... I'll have to review...

I feel your pain. I'm also a self-employed guy suffering the effects of a bad economy. Today, I'm the substitute gym teacher in the middle school. Stopped in for lunch.

At least, with our situation, when work comes our way, we can take care of it. When the boss says 'don't come back' there's a sort-of finality to it.

I have a bad feeling today. I feel something coming and I can't explain why or what. I think things are happening beyond the confines of our governmental idiots that will effect us. Not necessarily a war or false flag... maybe just an announcement.

And then it will be over.

I may not know the truth, but I know when I'm being lied to...

i think "farging" is correct

Been a few years since I saw the movie. Maybe its time to watch it again.

But things might have to change. i promise to be a polite criminal.

woo hoo!

I am sorry

We too have barely any work now. But I find that it works best when it finally hits that our creative juices flow. I know many people who started successful businesses when they were the lowest and down and out. Hope it helps you too. God help us all.


I wish you the best. Gold claim offer stands.

I'm so sorry :(

It's a very scary time for all of us. I don't really know what's going to happen.

I hope that you are at least somewhat prepared for making it without that job or getting yourself into a side business that can draw some income.

I think there are those of us that have decided to open businesses that are "crash proof" so to speak like selling chicken brooders, coops, and other things.

I can't do a lot, but if you need anything, please let me know.
