Looking for Work

Patrick went out to lunch with an old friend, who works for a human service nonprofit. She told him she advertised for a night shift worker at one of the programs she supervises. The job pays $8 an hour. She got a 100 resumes, some of them from middle aged men who had never worked in the field.

She said, "It's crazy out there."

Here in Fort Smith, one of my TAA students, a 60 year old laid off from Whirlpool last spring, who had been down to the Unemployment office to straighten out a problem with his benefits told me the line was out the door and around the corner. He'd never seen it like that, he said.
