When unemployment runs out, what's next?

Posted: Wednesday, July 08, 2009

I am deeply concerned about what comes after the extended unemployment runs out.

I haven't seen any jobs being opened up, or any alternatives brought forth for the winter when employment is down, or not at all.

The future is looking like a big vacant hole. What are we looking toward? States can't handle the burden of welfare.

I'm hearing a lot of talk about how things are getting worse. Homes are still being lost. Jobs are being lost. All the talk about bailout and a fresh start is slowly receding.

We need awareness. Half of the year is gone, and we are still trying to bail ourselves out of the past winter's financial situation. Our future is not very rosy or bright.

Is the country on the verge of the next depression?
