Unemployed since 08
Hello All, I have been a Law Enforcement Officer since graduating from the Academy in 99. I finished the academy second in my class. In 2008 our entire dept, was disbanded due to budget cuts (actually mis-appropriation of funds) or course they lied! I have always wanted to help other people, Why? Because i grew up in a broken home, 5 brothers and lots and lots of trouble. I was told many times by someone who was just arrested for beating the crap out his of wife, you don't know whats its like to be sitting here in the back of this car. I would turn and say you know how many times I have been sitting where you are?

I have said this because when a person decides to change his or her life, things begin too change also. There are so many things WRONG WITH COPS TODAY! I have had people i worked with that i would not trust, period, there are however, those that follow the constitution and DO CARE! I have seen the Good guys get bumped out time, and time again, this comes from the top. They (administration) are only worried about THEIR pay and position!

Please understand this, I have not been able to secure work since 2008, nothing (blackballed. I am a Christian Man who believes God is still in control. January of 2011 my wife was let go from her position On her 7th anniversary. We have both been looking hard for work. Please prepare your hearts, and minds. What is happening in this country is designed. I wish those that eyes to see and ears too hear do so. We are facing foreclosure on our home. God can change this as long as we do our part. There are no jobs, yet. None of us are perfect but you can know who that perfect being is! Best of 2013 to all! Phil 4:13

At 7.25 an hour you would of made over 14K last year. Enough to cover most, if not all, of your mortgage.

You are a drain to our society. There are jobs. I moved to a new town and had 3 job offers within 30 days.


Face it, you purposefully did not look or try to get a job at...

McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Call center work, Janitor, etc. You would of been hired by now. You have no one to blame but yourself.

get a job driving a truck you'll make between 36-40000k a year which is chicken feed but it pays the mortgage, food. call central refrigerated and talk to a recruiter they are always looking for drivers and they will train you, get you your CDL and you pay back the cost of tuition at 25 bucks a week. its a lonely job but you see a lot of the country

Re: Unemployed since 08
I think the good ones are being kicked to the curb and the "bad" ones are being given the royal treatment. I've been out of work on and off in crappy jobs and treated horribly even though I'm a great worker and follow rules and do the right things since the first election between Bush and Obama. I am a patriot and worked hard to try and convince everyone to vote for the republicans because I feel that Obama is the antichrist. I didn't tell people he is the antichrist but its what I think. I'm a Christian and a good person just like you and I don't understand how the last 3 jobs I've had I got attacked and treated badly at where I was a WAY better employee than the other people who treated me badly. I work well with others and I just don't get it. I pray for you that you find the job you need. Its truly frightening being out of work. I've never had so much trouble in my life with it. Its all happened under Obama. Hang in there.

Re: Unemployed since 08
I think this is structural. The traditional means of securing a future for yourself and family are gone, unless you are in the top 1% (not a 99%er just noting a reality). College degrees are not getting the jobs people anticipated (well maybe expected) and the majority of jobs are now part time minimum wage jobs, most of which are going to the age group 55 and older.

That group, the baby boomers, was like a swarm of locusts that descended on the land consuming everything in sight. They did it through debt, we ignored the offshoring of our industry for over 40 years and made up the difference in debt (promises). The remaining public servants have increased their own salaries almost double in the past ten years, double!

Basically, we can't afford all these promises, expectations and delusions our economy projected for the past 40 years since the debt or economic toxic waste is finally taking its toll on the main thing needed to keep it all going, growth. All the so called growth you see reported is in reality debt. Debt that will never be paid off.

I'm not trying to discourage you OP but sometimes we have to face reality. My (former) career was based on public spending (infrastructure) and I realize now that our government doesn't have the money to rebuild what needs to be rebuilt, and the little and dwindling credit potential they have is being directed into the financial sector (banks) to keep a dying status quo siphoning off the little remaining wealth of our nation.

Again, I don't want to depress you but I also think we need to face reality and from that perhaps we can see a course of action through the coming years.

What have known for the past 2-3 generations is coming to an end.

Wow, I guess your have figured it all out. Thank you for your Superior minded analytic point. I should have know better than to post story, perhaps moving had been an option, perhaps pizza hut, burger king, McDonalds, etc. are where i should be working? Perhaps those with college degrees have work there because there are No JOBS that they earned their degree in.

I ask for nothing, I am not on WELFARE, NEVER have been, no food stamps, ebt or otherwise. Countless applications submitted. Sorry to hear you say the things you have, i will get over it trust me. Only a real loser comments as you have!

I guess you are right OP, that I am a loser, since I have lost everything I had. Is that because I am inherently a loser or because circumstances beyond my control took what I had? Honestly I don't know for sure, but I do know that those who succeeded where either very fortunate or they had to do things on their job that their conscience needed to repress or ignore.

I was just addressing your concerns on the corruption you saw in your own field, I saw the same in my field but my conscience always prevented me from going with the crowd of "successful" people, thus I was sort of an outsider. The people that do succeed are lucky enough to get that stable job, but must go along with the herd who's own morality decays day by day.

If you are ignoring the macro trends that I first posted, and want to think that the system isn't broken beyond repair that is your own prerogative, however I challenge you to have a look at the level of debt and increasing dependence on a state system that can never hope of keeping all its promises.

The debt must be paid, there is no money to pay it so the only other payment is bankruptcy. That is how the system is designed and that is how it will function. We are morally and monetarily broke.

 Quoting: Sharty Mc Bean


Unfortunately there will be millions of people who attempt to retrain themselves in another career mid-life. Just look at the exponential rise in college debt/loans over the past 4-5 years.

The modern economy is very, very specialized. And to make it worse, the specialization that has evolved often undermines its own specialization, eventually putting itself out of work. For instance, technological innovation destroys 90% of the jobs in the industries it revolutionizes. Even those cheap slave labor camps in China manufacturing your I-Pods will soon be outfitted with complete robotics so even 3rd world slave labor is coming to an end.

When the economy becomes so specialized and that specialization eventually eliminates the specialized jobs via technological innovation all those millions of displaced workers need to be retrained. But retrained for what? Service jobs? Your point is ludicrous. Our economy is based on 70% consumption. You think that will hold up for long, that is transitioning someone(s) who held middle class jobs and earnings with associated lifestyle, to essentially part-time minimum wage earnings potential?

You are blinded by the current Keynesian thought that eventually massive debt spending will pull us out of our slump and set us on course to spend all we gained again.

Delusional.

Arm chair bandits must be very wealthy people that plan to never lose their jobs or health. Life can change at any moment for many reasons. Count your blessings, but don't kick a man when he is down. Ruthless people.

Good luck OP, it's a tough road. Been there and back a few times. Somehow I always end up back on my feet. I know age isn't on your side, but something will open. You can only look up at this point.

Personally, I'm not taking any chances again. I'm going to purchase a small RV cash....just in case the unimaginable should happen again.

I did nor have ever supported Obama. No politician can fix the problems this nation faces, those that continue to support the left or right are asleep and in denial.

And yes i graduated the academy in my forty's, got a problem with that? I have always had a job since i was 15 years of age. We change jobs through the course of our lives looking for fulfillment, something wrong with this? You can laugh and tee hee all the more pal, it is telling of your character!

I made $10.00 and hour working as a part time Police Officer while working full time in a bank. Before this i was a full time Sheriffs Deputy. I woke up sometime ago to the banksters and politicians. Bank of America and Wells Fargo can launder 327 billion dollars in drug money, and no one goes to jail, MF global can steal money from customers and that ok. Maybe that is acceptable to society today, that ole cant see it from my house. I want to work and will. This is a forum not a courtroom!

You are facing the truth, OP. It appears that police forces don't want real men who want to be peace officers. They increasingly want thugs on steroids who like to control the public. You can thank our federal government for creating militarized police.

One big contributor to the downfall of this nation is the fact that so many people will abuse, harm and even kill others for a paycheck. I hope things go well for you...we need more people with principals.
