Re: Just got laid off
After 24 years in the gulf of mexico I just got laid off so it looks like I'll end up losing My house. No point in looking for work because I live in an oil town and jobs not connected to the oil industry only pay like 8 dollars an hour.

You've worked that long and going to lose your house immediately after laid off? Did you save no money at all?

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 3174835


$20/hr * 2500 hrs/year = $50K

$50K * 7 = $350K total income

And you saved $200K? Meaning you lived on $150K over 7 years?

Are you forgetting your offbook income at the glory hole?

Hope you're good OP.

Truth is that it's time to get yourself unburied from the panic and start figuring out what you need to do next.

People here can help but you've got to help yourself first.

Hate to be the ass riding mom but it's the truth. When you are stuck on survival you don't have time to think about shitty thoughts.

Re: Just got laid off
Contact your mortgage company. They are probably doing a moratorium or something that is equivalent. In my state they have stopped evictions and foreclosures. The same might be true for yours.

Don't give up yet!

Not only that but banks are giving out loans at low interest rates right now.

People have options to weather this.

In my area, anyone with heavy industrial experience in a job like oil rigging would easily be able to find a job paying $20+ at any maintenance/construction/manufacturing oriented business.

STOP! Life is always worth living. Seek the guidance of the lord in these troubled times. Also follow the advice of others here and contact your lender and other service providers/bill collectors, you will be pleasantly surprised with the willingness to work with you.

I promise you, your job will return, we are moving towards become more self sustaining as a country as far as oil/gas/energy production and with these changes, the jobs will return or be created.

So, you bought too much house and are too good to work for $8/hr? GTFO fagggot.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 3174835



No its a 1850 square foot house and the mortgage is 1400 a month due to the EX blowing everything I made over the years and having to take out a home equity line to pay off Her credit card debt. I wouldn't have a problem working for 8 dollars an hour but since My bills are over 2k a month that isn't possible.

So you decided to irresponsibly let your wife spend all of your earnings and rack up debt without putting your foot down at some point? Sorry, can't say I'm sympathetic here.
