    I think luck is turning MY direction. The corporate free ride is ending.

    PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE

    And explore self-employment and/or forming co-ops with your colleagues.

      with your coworkers - sounds to me like organizing a union...;)

      the strongest kind of job security there is...though sadly not nearly as strong as it should be

        as worker/owners. There are many approaches to this, and it's a fast-growing business model.

        If you want to learn more about co-ops, check out the non-profit National Cooperative Business Assn, and there are local affiliates. NCBA.coop.

        In California, there is the California Center for Cooperative Development - CCCD.coop.
