Good point. I do not blame people for being unemployed if no jobs are available. I do blame them for not looking ahead. In today's world anyone can lose their job overnight and should have some sort of plan for dealing with that possibility. 3 to 12 months worth of emergency cash might be a good start. Living below your means is another. We haven't run out of jobs in this country yet, at least not in TX. or FL. I still see "now hiring " in quite a few places. It may not be the job you want, but it is a job. Also, If there are no jobs in one's area, then it might be wise to go somewhere that has jobs. I'll end it there as I have to be at work in 4 and a half hours. You are right Jack. No man is an island. I just think that it is much easier to help some one out if they are helping themelves.
