    Though in Germany at the time, my daughters' stories sound very similar: one had her own business when the clouds started forming; the other, like you, just missed the (shitty) job the first go around (but managed to catch another one on the rebound).

    Part of the "problem" (there are many, I know) is that too many are being forced into those (shitty) jobs simply to avoid long-term unemployment, but with many companies (not just banks) showing record profits, you have to ask yourself if all of this isn't somehow "calculated" to keep wages down and dissent in check. After all, anyone thankful to be working tends not to overtly criticize.

    Hang in there.

    None are so hopelessly enslaved as those who falsely believe they are free. -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
