I am very grateful to have a job-and one that I really like. So many others don't have a job at all.
My husband has what has become a very part-time job-and, while he would love to work more hours, he is grateful to have anything in this economy.
I have friends that lost jobs last year. Teachers all over the state are unemployed.
I have friends that have had pay cuts each year (pay freeze + more insurance costs).
My (single mom) sister doesn't have a job. At all. I think she gave up looking after several months of rejection.
I may hate getting up early, would rather be gardening than working, would rather be wealthy and not have to work at all, gripe about the stress and the "do work at home attitude" expected by "school districts"--but I am very glad that I have a job.
