When Will It End
The new year arrived with the same pump and circumstance as the last one. This time around I made no resolutions, except landing gainful employment. With this current economy, hiring is at a standstill in the Big Apple.
Employers now have the upper hand that they always wanted. With so many people unemployed, competition is becoming more fierce as the days go by and unpaid bills pile up, with no money to pay debts.
Pride is all but gone now, and survival is the buzz word of the day and month. I have decided to barter my services, as things become increasingly worse. It's a good way to meet new people, network and build connections. After all, even the unemployed has to eat. No one knows whether or not there will be another stimulus package, when the new president takes office. If there is one, it can't come along soon enough.
