      layoff of a government-based mental health center job.

      I am re-employed now, after 8 years (laid off June 2002 - finally  got a real job in April 2010) and obtaining a professional licence I am now making just a bit less than I as 10 years ago, without health insurance. I have been re-employed now nearly 3 years and you don't get over a huge layoff in a few paychecks.

      I just managed to buy some glasses for the first time in 12 years.

      And it is always easier for me, no matter how rough it was/is - Delivering pizza, working for criminals, not getting paid)   so many other people just got devastated so I imagine they may never get out of the hole. Not without help.

      The effort being put into NOT helping them is..how can you not call it evil?

      The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.
