I have been in construction, masonry , for 30 years as a mason, foreman, estiamtor and project manager. I have experience in both union and non union environments. I have been out of work for over 2 years and have no prospects.
What happened to experience being an asset? No one wants a proven craftsman today. They do not want an "pld" person. You must be 20 years old, work for nothing and speak with a foreign accent before anyone will talk to you.
Our standardof living is gone. The government wants us to reduce our standard of living to the rest of the world.
Theer will never be a real recovery in his counrty until construction and auto jobs come back. You cannot have an economy based on going to the mall or diner. Somewhere along the line it will all come to an end.
I have no job, will be homeless in a couple of weeks, and no place to live.
Thank Obama for my health care. I don't know what I would do without it.
