So I was thinking about all the people laid off from dot.coms
, and people laid off from places like LTV
, luckily I’m not in either group as of yet, but I wonder about the differences
On one hand, the dot.bombers still have their computers, the web is there, so are some jobs
, and the possibility of free lance work is always bobbing around, but the glory days are behind us.
Steel workers, on the other hand, well… the plant is gone, they can’t open another plant in their basement, plus to make things worse, they are probably older, and less educated, it seems harder to find work
Who has it worse, and with the current economy, will things get
for all of us?
