Wow. I cannot imagine having to go through this, but I am sure there are plenty of people who are. My brother lost his job 3 weeks ago and has not even been able to get an interview – and he is an accountant! But to go from making a six figure salary to hoping to make $7 an hour, that has to be real hard on a person:
In her best year as a mortgage broker, Laura Glick says she made “six figures.” This week she was one of more than 1,200 people attending a job fair and applying for one of 150 jobs paying between $7 and $12 an hour at a new Kohl’s department store in a Denver, Colorado, suburb. Laura Glick says she has a good resume but even getting an interview is difficult. She has been out of work for seven months and never thought it would take her this long to find a job. It’s not the kind of job she thought she would be applying for, but she has a case of the jitters just the same.
Is anyone going through this right now or know someone who is? And if so, in what industry were they making the money?
