Unemployed & Alone Update

Response

I could have written that letter. I find myself in the exact same situation. I have had good jobs in past years that I left so that I could take care of aging parents. Now that they are both deceased, there are no jobs for me. Sure, there are fast food restaurants and retail jobs, but I don't think I could stand on my feet all day. I have spent the last 3 1/2 years trying to find a job. I am 57 and feel like I have at least another 10 to 15 years of work left in me. Some people would say that I should volunteer. I already volunteer. It doesn't pay any of my bills. By the time the economy recovers, I will be in a nursing home. I'm thinking at about 85. I totally sympathize with "Unemployed and Alone". There are many of us and I don't know who or what will help us.

    I posted Unemployed & Alone~I have an idea!

    I would like to get together with unemployed (whatever reason) or just lonely people over 50.
    This would be to socialize, vent, brainstorm, and have time away from the problem.
    Anyone interested? Email me at kimhastings76@yahoo.com
