With the economy going nowhere fast in the U.S., more and more unemployed workers are looking toward endless unemployment with little hope for their future.
Two recent articles I read highlight this problem and the associated devastating impact being unemployed can have on one’s emotional health — especially their self-esteem and sense of worth. While not all of us value ourselves based upon our job, it can’t help to make up a part of our self-worth no matter where we are in life.
Some people believe age starts playing more and more of a discriminatory role in the hiring process. Older people feel like they are often not hired because of their age, or perhaps because their greater experience requires a higher starting salary.
In any case, it’s no fun being unemployed for months, or even years. In fact, it can make a person downright suicidal.
