dropouts

“The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.”   Vince Lombardi

In the economy or world we live in now many people have dropped out of the workforce completely.   They have stopped looking and more than likely all their unemployment benefits have run out as well.   There is a huge reservoir of unemployed people who have given up, have lost hope and the determination to find new work.   The statistics show an 8.1% unemployment rate and it doesn’t include a huge pool of people who have given up.    When all the people looking and not looking for work (though they do want to work) the unemployment rate creeps to 22.5% which is much higher than what the government reports.

What is the country losing?

If you’ve been down-sized, right-sized, or displaced share your story.   What was it like to find out your career was ending?    What would you change for the future?

What is your story?
