How Will We Survive Our Jobless Era?

The March 2010 issue of “The Atlantic” contains a fascinating article entitled How a New Jobless Era Will Transform America. Our changing unemployment status in the past few years is only a part of a larger trend that affects family life, personal health, politics, and our whole social fabric.

It’s common knowledge that the majority of manufacturing jobs has moved overseas in recent decades. Now more women are working than men because more women are hired for the service sector than men. More young people in their twenties and beyond are living with their parents and generally aren’t too motivated to work, assuming they can find any. More and more children are born into single mother families. And on it goes.

We’d better get used to the fact that the employment picture has changed for the long term. In other words, the old economic model is out the window. Isn’t it time to rethink our whole outlook on work and doing what we need to get by?

If your household has been affected by unemployment, get The Unemployment Survival Guide, and begin the journey into re-evaluating how you’ll survive in our era of growing joblessness.
