  •  At least one of those jobs was one I had. (0+ / 0-)

    I made the mistake of shifting to IT Contract work at the beginning of 2000.  One year later, instead of a second renewal of my six-month contract, major reorganizations within the communications mega-corporation forced me out the door with little more than a handshake.  The contract agency I was with at that time went belly-up six months afterwards.

    Now I'm doing work outside of the IT sector for half of what I was making at that time, doing work that is far less interesting and horribly unrewarding.

    This isn't the American Dream for which I signed up many years ago.  I've had enough... have you?
