Stories of the unemployed with rich daddies and boyfriends or money in the bank

New York magazine decided to steal my idea and tell the stories of unemployed New Yorkers…

My Laid-Off Life

They picked seven people from the jobless middle class masses and lent them the services of a professional writer. If only their stories were as interesting, engaging, exciting, moving, gripping, captivating, intriging, refreshing, enjoyable, glamorous, thought-provoking and well written (I could keep going…) as mine. But I guess we can’t all be hacks.  Keep working at it, NY Mag, you’ll get there.

    My husband has been laid off from a steel mill in Ohio for a year now along with 800 other employees. I am looking for work but have been home with our kids for the past 10 years. We lose our health benefits in a week. I feel like we have lost our idenity. I thought before I had some control over our lives now I don’t know who we are. It feels like less though. I need to go to job and family services to apply for benefits but I find it hard to bring myself to do this. Our old life is gone with that steel mill that closed down now the road ahead is unknown.
