My prediction

My prediction is that Obamacare will really drive unemployment in the coming years. We'll hear all of this talk about job creation and we'll hear nothing about how employers will have to cut back hiring, automate more, offshore more, and contort their labor force (like reducing hours) to deal with the healthcare costs.

It's going to be big and everyone will be poorer.

PERSONAL ADVICE: I would go work independently with your now added free time. Do cash jobs - mow lawns, rake leaves, shovel snow, clean out garages. Detail cars! You'll make more money.

Or become a knowledge worker of some sort. A smart DPer probably can do better than being a car gopher for 3.5 years.
