I am a divorced 59 yr old female with a masters degree. I have been out of work since 08/07. I have moved three times to three different states hoping to find employment....from CA to NV and now OR. I have probably had less than 20 interviews over this period of time. Now the end has come with my benefits. There is nothing coming in, no health insurance either. It really bothers me when I hear some politicians insinuate that this will motivate people such as myself to get a job! People in our age bracket are finding it almost impossible to find work right now....I mean any work at all even outside our career fields. I am not sure what is next...back to college? food stamps and housing assistance and welfare? We have to let our representatives know we need a Tier V desperately and sooner than later.
