I keep reading some very vicious posts on another site attacking me because I am long term unemployed. Not that it’s any of your business those of you attacking me, but in fact I do work for myself now. All of these comments like “there’s McDonalds” great but did you know now it’s harder to get a job there than to be accepted at Harvard? Trust me I have applied at those jobs but they don’t hire people like me. Why would they hire someone smarter than them? My field is becoming obsolete and the few jobs in the field are going to visaed workers or being outsourced. This is a FACT. There are people unemployed longer than I have been. Not that this is also your business but I live off savings and money I make working for myself.
